In what amounted to one of the bigger close calls in Major League Baseball history, Brian Roberts of the New York Yankees got the baseball stuck between his legs while sliding back into second base on a pickoff attempt.
Roenis Elias was the pitcher for the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night with Brett Gardner at the plate for the Bronx Bombers when Roberts was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
