Lost in the madness of the NCAA tournament over the past few days are the happenings of the baseball teams down in Florida. Yes, they still plug away at their Grapefruit League slate while we’re all tuned to Jim Nance and Clark Kellogg. The Fightins took on the Red Sox yesterday and fell to Shane Victorino’s new team by the final of 7-6.
Chase Utley had a hot day, going 3-4 with 4 RBIS, including his fourth homer of spring (more on a hot Utley here), but Ben Revere was the guy earning himself a blog post. The speedy center fielder was 2-3 with a walk, a RBI, and 2 runs. But it was an amazing diving grab he made to rob Will Middlebrooks in the seventh inning that was worth a second look.
The AP captured the fantastic shot of the grab above and you can see the moving pictures below. Revere could be one of the more fun guys to watch this summer at CBP.
Ben Revere with an outstaning diving catch in center. Full sprint. I think Philadelphia will enjoy watching him.

And just because, feel free to caption what Victorino and Ryan Howard are laughing about in this photo.
