Nick Pivetta Eschews Glove, Makes Sick Catch With Jersey Alone

As a general rule, activities that typically require the use of one’s hands are much cooler when performed without hands. Like, for instance, catching a baseball. Phillies pitcher Nick Pivetta proved this one pretty well in the sixth inning of tonight’s game against the Dodgers, snaring a comebacker to the mound inside his jersey while somehow managing to avoid actually getting hit in the chest.


It’s hard to grab the title of weirdest occurrence in a game that features Clayton Kershaw giving up a grand slam to Aaron Altherr, but this one’s pretty close.
