Here is the last of four batches of nominees for the 2015 play of the year. Small video of each has been embedded as a reminder of the play, or you can click on the header link, which will open a new tab with a larger version of the video on MLB.com. Pick your favorite of these five in the poll at the bottom. The winner of each group, and the highest-scoring runner up, will advance to the final vote, which will take place next week.
Yeah. It's not coming back. In fact, I wonder if it has landed yet? According to OnlineHitTracker.com, which tagged it at 482 feet, only Giancarlo Stanton had any longer home-runs this year.
Most amusing play of the year, saw Rubby get all mixed-up in his wind-up, and end up shot-putting the pitch to the backstop. Good effort. Rubby - good effort. But, hey: he got the W with a quality start in Coors Field.
A.J. Pollock ranges back to the wall in left-center and makes a homer-robbing catch to keep the Giants off the scoreboard.
Nick Ahmed fully extends to stop a grounder and fires to second off one knee, retiring the lead runner as he injures his back. Pretty much ended his season.
You only get one chance to make a first impression. And you only get one chance to hit your first major-league home-run. Safe to say, O'Brien managed to do both here.
