Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins is a rising star, and he manages to make game-changing plays with both his bat and his glove.
Tuesday’s game against the Mets nearly featured the latter, when Hoskins did a great job of tracking a long fly ball that was crushed toward the warning track in the third inning of the game.
Unfortunately for Hoskins, he just missed making the catch when he reached out with his glove, and ended up crashing into the wall — face-first. Ouch.
Hoskins was looked at by trainers, but he did eventually remain in the game — proving that he’s tough as nails.
