The Washington Nationals were in Chicago to take on the Cubs Thursday and the conditions at Wrigley field were less than desirable for those playing in the outfield.
Immediately after Valbuena made contact, Span motioned with his hands to show he had no idea where the ball was. Shortstop Ian Desmond and pitcher Doug Fister tried to help, but didn’t provide much assistance. By the time the ball landed, rolled around, and was picked up by Span, Valbuena was coasting into third with an easy triple.
Tough to place much blame on Span when this is what he was looking up into.
