Ryan Freel's Spectacular Catch--Not Quite Spectacular [Addison Quale]

On Monday night Ryan Freel playing CF for the Reds collided with fellow outfielder Norris Hopper in pursuit of a fly ball into the gap. Replays show that Freel made the catch--that was until he was knocked unconscious in the process of catching it by Hopper's errant elbow. Umps ruled the play an out as when they arrived to see the unconscious Freel lying on the ground, the ball was found in his glove. But look closely at the video and you'll see that he had some help from his little friend. Hopper clearly, arriving on the scene first to see if Freel is ok, makes sure he puts the ball back in his glove too!
