The Yankees are looking to get healthy against the woeful White Sox Monday night, following a decisive four-game sweep at the hands of the Red Sox that all but ended the race for the AL East. Mostly they’re having their way, but the highlight of the game came in the top of the fourth inning, when Yankees first baseman Greg Bird blasted a ball over the wall in center, only to have it yanked back by White Sox centerfielder Adam Engel:
Incredible snag! The third angle in the video is the real winner, showing how high Engel got for this grab, and the spectacular timing of his leap. This wasn’t just a leaping catch at the wall; this was a by-God robbed dinger.
