The College Baseball Announcer Who Made the Catch of the Year

Texas Tech had a 7-0 lead over West Virginia in the top of the 8thinning on Friday when socially distanced fans at Monongalia County Ballpark were treated to the play of the night. It didn’t happen on the field, but rather in the visitor’s broadcast booth, where Texas Tech radio announcer Geoff Haxton was calling the action. Red Raiders infielder Jace Jung smoked a foul ball, one that Haxton noted was “coming right at us” before he made an astonishing barehanded grab.
