Evan Longoria Acts Quickly To Save A Reporter From An Impending Injury

Tampa Bay Rays player Evan Longoria may be one of the best third basemen currently playing baseball, he’s earned two Golden Gloves and a Silver Slugger Award, along with a  laundry list of accolades that attest to his baseball skills. But watch how he catches a ball that is hurtling towards him with his bare hands!

In this video, a reporter is interviewing Longoria near the first base line while the team is practicing. Fellow Tampa Bay Ray gets up to bat and hits a line drive at Longoria and the reporter. While the ball whizzes towards the two, Longoria spins around and catches the ball in his ungloved hand. He then tells his teammates to “Keep it on the field,” while the reporter stares in awe.
