|Marte whiffs at his odd attempt to field Zim's ball.|
Yet something didn't quite look right in the outfield as Marte, who is right-handed, displayed a bare left palm while attempting to field the ball using his throwing hand. Replays indicate Marte appeared to have held his glove with his right hand, though the glove did not make contact with the batted ball as it skipped out towards left-center field. (Video: A triple after an outfield miscue.)
Q: This group case play is worth one point and expires Thursday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time; to secure your case play point, be sure to include your username in your reply (or as your posting name)—Assume Starling Marte's glove—as held, but not worn, by his right (aka throwing) hand, as in the video above—touches the ball; where should Ryan Zimmerman end up and how shall this play be scored? In other words, how shall play proceed: is such contact between a held glove and a batted ball legal? As a refresher, at time of pitch, the Pirates led the Nationals 2-1 with none out and none on in the top of the 4th inning.
