Jayson Werth makes sweet unintentional bare-handed catch (Video)
Jayson Werth made highlight reels for a sweet bare-handed grab he made on Sunday — but the twist is he did it by accident.

The announcer said the wind had moved the ball over, which makes sense, because Werth misplayed it and ended up catching the ball with his bare hand instead of his glove.
The play reminds us of the classic Kevin Mitchell bare-handed catch made when he misjudged an Ozzie Smith slicing fly ball down the line so badly he had to reach up with his throwing hand to snag the ball:
