As the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals play almost back-to-back series against one other, some players have made amazing catches. Last night, the Twins' third baseman Trevor Plouffe made an incredible catch as he flipped into the dugout.
Last week Minnesota Twins' third baseman, Trevor Plouffe, was on his way to a home run that was stolen from him by a fantastic catch made by outfielder Lorenzo Cain, of the Kansas City Royals, as Yahoo! Sports notes.
During Monday night's game Plouffe decided to repay the favor.
As batter Alex Gordon whacked a ball along the third base foul line as the Royals held a 6-0 lead, Plouffe followed the hit right to the railing of the visitor dugout. He reaches for the ball and falls into the dugout head first.
