Jake Peavy Moment Number 5: Peavy “Makes” a Basket Catch
Jake Peavy always let everyone know how he was feeling, and when he didn’t get a strike call on a check swing he made sure the umpire at third base knew it. Buster Posey didn’t notice that Peavy was still arguing with the third base ump and lobbed the ball back to the mound. As it turned out, Posey isn’t the only Bay Area sharpshooter as he lobbed the ball right into Peavy’s glove. What could have been a scary moment turned out to be a hilarious memory.
