‘Did he get it?!’ See the HR robbery of the season

ARLINGTON — Rangers outfielder Eli White drifted back to the wall, leaning up on the visitor’s bullpen as Ji-Man Choi’s long fly ball hung in the air.

Off the bat, it seemed like the Rays first baseman had hit a no-doubt three-run homer to put Tampa Bay up early, and you can see why. Choi hit the ball 405 feet into deep left-center field with a 106.1 mph exit velocity and an expected batting average of .850.

But not if White had anything to say about it.

The outfielder leaped at the warning track, falling halfway back into the visitor’s bullpen and snagged the ball to rob Choi of securing his fifth home run of the year, helping keep the game scoreless in the opener.

Rangers manager Chris Woodward and coaches throughout the organization have consistently said White is one of the best athletes and maybe even the best defensive outfielder overall that the club has.

He’s consistently shown that and more, so much that it keeps him in the lineup at the Major League level despite a slow start offensively. White rewarded that faith by promptly smacking a two-run homer of his own in the second inning.
