Jarrod Dyson Makes Marlins Park History With Amazing Griffey-Like Catch


August 26, 2016

Is that Ken Griffey Jr. patrolling center field for the Kansas City Royals?

Nope, it’s Jarrod Dyson.

But Dyson sure looked like the Hall of Famer when he made history Thursday night by robbing Christian Yelich of a home run in the first inning of Kansas City’s 5-2 win over the Miami Marlins. It was the first robbed home run in Marlins Park history, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Given the way Dyson extended to make the catch, it’s hard not to think of Griffey’s memorable grab while crashing into the wall at the Kingdome in 1991.
