Upton Makes it Look Easy
Several times during this past off-season I had the opportunity to walk onto the grounds at Tropicana Field through the opened section of wall in center field. Each time this happened, I was struck by the vast area that needs to be covered by a center-fielder.
Now I’m reminded of the enormity of center field and how easy B.J. Upton makes covering that turf look so easy. Alex Cora just hit a ball to deep center field in the top of the fourth, Upton kicked his long stride into high gear then hauled in the drive with ease.
If he’s not already the best center-fielder in baseball, he’s not far behind.
