Video: Blue Jays RHP Chad Jenkins loses then catches glove -- with ball in it

Saturday September 29th, 2012

New York Yankees centerfielder Curtis Granderson probably thought he had a hit when he scorched a line drive up the middle off the glove of Toronto Blue Jays righthander Chad Jenkins. In fact, the ball knocked the glove off of Jenkins' left hand.

Miraculously, though, the ball stayed in the web of the glove as it spun in the air, and Jenkins was able to catch it to record the final out of the first inning. Jenkins then nonchalantly walked off the mound, showing the ball to the umpire, as if he'd made the play a thousand times before. has the video:
