Mark DeRosa Avoids Flying Mitt, Makes Great Catch

In the eighth inning of the Blue Jays and Orioles game Friday, Mark DeRosa caught a limping pop-up that trailed foul just inside the front row seats along the 3rd-baseline.  Upon retrieval of the foul pop-up off the bat of wunderkind Matt Wieters, DeRosa slips right as he gets to the wall, avoids several sets of fan hands, and then somehow still manages to make the catch.  The best part?  He also avoided a flying mitt from about four rows up (look for the guy wearing the long-sleeved grey shirt).  Already a great catch, playing it cool and avoiding the flying mitt gave it a Wooderson score of 8/10.
