Buster Posey had no idea where a popup went off the bat, but figured it out just in time
One of the most helpless feelings on the diamond has to be that of the catcher when a baseball is somewhere -- but you don't know where.
This scenario can play out on wild pitches, passed balls, popups, and so on. It can be a bit of a confusing time, for sure. Buster Posey certainly had an adventure in the sixth inning of Monday's Giants-Padres game at Petco Park thanks to a few different things happening at once.
The problem? The ball was live, and was right above him in the air on its way back down to Earth. He didn't know that, though, until Moronta yelled and gestured and Posey somehow figured it all out in time to make the play and retire Villanueva:
