Yadier Molina caught a foul third strike with his thigh (Video)

You wouldn’t get much of an argument for declaring Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals as the best catcher in Major League Baseball. He’s won six consecutive Gold Glove Awards, made five straight All-Star teams, and finished in top five of National League MVP voting each of the past two seasons.

On Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, Molina managed to help Randy Choate record a strikeout in a way that was unconventional to say the least. After Nate Schierholtz fouled a pitch, the ball found its way to Molina’s thigh, where it stayed.

Definitely not the among the least painful ways Yadier Molina has caught a third strike.
