Video: Francisco Lindor puts on a routine as a fly ball gets stuck in Tropicana Field catwalk

The Indians and Rays were just about to wrap up an otherwise unremarkable game on Wednesday night when something remarkable happened. Desmond Jennings popped up a Cody Allen fastball into foul territory near third base. Third baseman Juan Uribe went after it but eventually gave way to shortstop Francisco Lindor.

The ball got stuck in the catwalk and Lindor seemed to be bracing for the ball to fall down and hit him as he turned his head town and put his glove over it. The ball never dropped down. Lindor, with a grin on his face, pretended to dive as if it had. Pretty funny stuff.

Shortly thereafter, the Indians wrapped up a 4-1 victory.
