Web gem catches are often reserved for the players on the field. Yet in a game that featured former Gold Glove winners like Mark Teixeira, Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, it was fan Michael Kacer who was featured on all the weekend highlight reels.
Kacer, a 29-year-old war veteran who lost his left arm in a 2008 rocket attack, was sitting near the visitor’s dugout for Friday nights Yankees-Rockies matchup in New York.
