No, Manny Machado, a ricochet off the netting doesn't count as a catch -- but nice try
Rules are rules for a reason. Without them, there would be chaos in every capacity.
This is especially true on the baseball diamond, as without rules the game would be a wildly different experience than what it is.
Who wants that? Perhaps
I can't knock Machado for trying to pull one over on everybody, honestly. The dude knows what a catch is, after all.
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
