Latrobe Legion baseball highlight makes ESPN’s Top Plays
Latrobe outfielder Logan Gustafson’s leaping, lunging, diving catch grabbed the No. 2 spot Friday night on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Plays.
Early in the Latrobe Jethawks Post 515 American Legion team’s game against Clarksburg in the annual Hillbilly Hardball Classic in Elkins, W.Va., Gustafson broke to his left, locked in on a potential gap-shot and fully extended to make the grab.
He even managed to bounce back up and adjust his cap.
Latrobe won the game, 6-5.
ESPN anchors John Buccigross and Kenny Mayne could not settle the decades-long debate of whether Latrobe is pronounced “Lay-trobe” or “La-trobe,” but both seemed to enjoy the highlight nonetheless.
Latrobe is playing five games in three days at the Classic before returning home.
