Carlos Gonzalez breaks chain making diving catch (Video)
During Sunday’s game between the Marlins and Rockies, Carlos Gonazalez made a play that might earn him a spot on a few highlight reels. However, his all out effort cost him a piece of jewelry.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, Gonzalez charged in and laid out to make a diving catch, robbing Miami catcher Jeff Mathis of a would-be base hit.
When Gonzalez came up to bat in the top half of the following inning, it was pointed out during the television broadcast Gonzalez snapped the chain around his neck in half while making the great play. A replay was shown of him recognizing it upon reaching his feet, at which time he took the chain off and put it in his pocket.
It’s certainly not uncommon to see baseball players with chains around their neck on the field. This is the first time I’ve seen one damaged during a game though.
