Watch this Minor Leaguer make three outstanding catches in one night
It's something special to witness one defensive gem in a night. Two? That's rare, but not out of the ordinary. What about three outstanding defensive catches in one night? That's what Carl Chester of the Hudson Valley Renegades did on Tuesday.
The Class A affiliate of the Rays hosted a double header against the Tri-City Valleycats (Astros) and across two games the outfielder accumulated a lot of reasons to brag.
Chester stretched out for each of the catches, and over the course of 22 innings (both games went into extras), he saved pitchers while creating quite the portfolio for himself. He has also been stellar at the plate, boasting a .322/.412/.425 line this season.
The Renegades fell to the Valleycats in the first game, 0-2, but came back with a walk-off, 4-3 win in the night game.
