Jackie Bradley Jr. making a great catch is pretty much a daily occurrence.
Bradley robbed Evan Longoria of an extra-base hit Saturday in the sixth inning of the Boston Red Sox’s 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The 24-year-old outfielder again showed tremendous range while tracking down a fly ball to deep left-center field.
Bradley said after the game that playing on turf — like that at Tropicana Field — can wear down your body a bit. However, he also thinks the playing surface might have helped him make up ground more easily.
