Jose Reyes knocks cover off baseball (Video)
During Friday’s game between the Mets and Nationals, Jose Reyes showed off his strength when he hit a baseball that didn’t go any further than home plate.
In the bottom of the first inning, Reyes hit a foul ball that went straight down into the dirt around home plate. As the ball was spinning, it was apparent the Mets infielder had knocked a portion of the cover loose.
It wasn’t quite as dramatic as when Roy Hobbs knocked the cover off the ball in “The Natural.” However, it’s still something Reyes can have fun with later. If you haven’t seen the scene from the movie starring Robert Redford, you can watch below.
