This fly ball hit off Raimel Tapia's glove, face, hand and shoulder before he caught it in his armpit
This fly ball off Justin Turner's bat during Sunday's Rockies-Dodgers game should've just been a can of corn for center fielder Raimel Tapia. But instead, Tapia, a showman at heart, wanted to give us a play to remember. He wanted to make the routine come off as wildly entertaining.
Well done, Raimel.
Just tap it in. Just tap it in. Give it a little tappy. Tap, tap, taparoo. pic.twitter.com/KqGp3Rru3J- MLB (@MLB) July 1, 2018
That ball was volleyed at least six times and hit a different body part with each point of contact. Tapia also gets major bonus points for catching it in his armpit instead of his glove. Hopefully middle-school science teachers can use this clip to teach students about the various muscles and bones that make up the human anatomy for years to come.
