Mets' Jonathan Villar has to dodge balls rolling alongside Padres' dugout as he chases popup


Mets third baseman Jonathan Villar all of the sudden discovered himself taking part in dodgeball throughout a baseball sport Friday evening.

Villar was chasing down a foul popup hit by the Padres’ Jurickson Profar within the fifth inning. As he received close to the San Diego dugout, 4 or 5 balls rolled in his route. Villar even kicked one of many balls however stayed on his toes and made the catch.

Had been the Padres blatantly dishonest? No. The bat boy assigned to the San Diego aspect knocked over a bucket of balls on the completely worst time. 

Clearly, the younger man was making an attempt to keep away from contact with Villar and catcher James McCann however created extra issues as a substitute.

In the long run, it was no hurt, no foul, however there was a very good likelihood of Villar turning an ankle or knee on that play. He missed two video games final week with hamstring tightness, so he isn’t taking part in at full well being, both.

At the very least he wasn’t the thing of unsportsmanlike conduct.
