There hasn't been much to celebrate this year in Miami. Despite a much-hyped offseason and a brand new everything (manager, stadium, name, etc.), the Marlins have largely disappointed, finishing last in the NL East.
But Tuesday night provided a break from all the negativity. On Tuesday the Marlins welcomed Adam Greenberg to fulfill his dream of getting one final at-bat. The 31-year-old Greenberg struck out in the bottom of the sixth inning.
While Greenberg's at-bat may have been the most memorable moment of the game, one young fan provided his own highlight-reel play.
With the game tied at 3 in the top of the ninth inning, Jordany Valdespin fouled a sinker into the stands beyond the third base line. This young boy reached over the railing and made a beautiful backhanded catch that drew applause from those around him and a humongous hug from a woman who is presumably his mother.
Maybe the Marlins should think about signing this kid to a one-day contract.
