Gelof's Loon-ey play

Some defensive plays require a level of courage that only a real loon could possess. Especially ones that involve the tarp and an on-field bullpen. Fortunately for High-A Great Lakes, Jake Gelof was just the loon, err, Loon, they needed on this pop fly. Gelof ran a long way to track this down, and he held on after crashing hard into the tarp.

Williamson's diving stop

This is one of the most difficult plays for a third baseman. The ball is hit very hard down the line, and, if they're able to actually stop the ball, there's a pretty long throw to make. Ben Williamson has only played 47 professional games at the hot corner. But he's equal to the task for Double-A Arkansas on this hard grounder.

Some people call him Joey

The Bees were threatening with a pair of runners in scoring position when Drew Ellis cracked a 101 mph liner to left center. But Space Cowboys' center fielder Joey Loperfido decided it was time to take flight. The Astros' No. 5 prospect left his feet to snag the liner, which already seemed ticketed for the gap.

Roccaforte steals one for the Bandits

This fly ball off the bat of Eduarqui Fernandez was at least a couple feet above the wall in dead center. It seemed like a safe home run. But Carson Roccaforte was there do the River Bandits' name proud. The High-A Quad Cities center fielder got way up to pull this homer back for the out.

Who you gonna Call?

Usually when slugger Niko Kavadas hits a ball this hard (106.5 mph) and this far (407 feet), they stay gone. But Alex Call stepped up at the right time. The Triple-A Rochester center fielder ran 86 feet on a perfect post route and timed his leap perfectly to bring back the would-be round tripper.
