Watch: White Sox’s Adam Engel robs home run with great catch
Chicago White Sox center fielder Adam Engel made a great catch to rob Greg Bird of a home run during Monday night’s game against the New York Yankees.
Bird was batting with runners on first and second and one out in the top of the fourth when he blasted a ball to center. Engel took his time going back and measured his leap, which was timed perfectly. He reached above the wall and made a catch to rob Bird of a 3-run home run.
