The physics seem unlikely: Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu caught a pop foul Saturday that bounced off the mitt of catcher Adrian Nieto and landed between Abreu's legs after both players nearly collided near the Kansas City Royals dugout. Abreu and Nieto both first-year major leaguers converged on a pop-up by Alcides Escobar in the bottom of the third inning, with Abreu skidding hard to a stop just before what would have been a dangerous collision with Nieto. In his first season since coming over from Cuba, Abreu has appeared nothing if not prepared for life in Major League Baseball. Abreu stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 260 pounds, so those are considerable thighs. His between-the-legs play also reminded White Sox voice Ken Harrelson of a similar-ish moment with Pete Rose and Bob Boone that's famous from old highlight reels.
