This Dodgers Prospect Hit the Strangest Home Run You’ll Ever See

A Dodgers prospect just did something that will likely never be seen again in the game of baseball.

When the Oklahoma City Dodgers were in Sacramento this weekend, infielder Devin Mann hit a home run that was caught by the centerfielder.

How is this possible?

With the Dodgers up 2-0, Mann hit a deep fly ball to the warning track that Giants prospect Bryce Johnson caught on the run. In order to slow himself down, Johnson jumped up against a short wall in right center field.

While he was jumping up against the fence, Johnson dropped the ball on the other side of the wall. Confusion erupted when Johnson revealed that he was no longer in possession of the ball.

Mann, who had already returned to the dugout thinking he was out, started his home run trot nearly 20 seconds after Johnson caught the ball.

The home run put the Dodgers up 3-0 in the top of the fourth and helped LA’s Triple-A affiliate win its fourth straight game by a score of 6-4.

That home run added onto the great year that Mann is having. In 78 games, the 26-year old has 14 home runs, 64 RBIs and is hitting .312.

The Dodgers 30th ranked prospects could be hitting home runs in Los Angeles this September when rosters expand.
