Riley Greene One-Ups Derek Hill?
Remember the great catch that Detroit Tigers minor league outfielder Derek Hill made last week?
Well, fellow minor leaguer and 2019 first round draft choice Riley Greene may have done one better during the Tigers intrasquad game at Comerica Park on Monday.
Greene was the fifth overall selection in the 2019 MLB Draft, and he spent last season with the West Michigan Whitecaps of the Midwest League. And he made a couple of appearances in Lansing when they played the Lugnuts late in the 2019 season.
The only difference between Hill's catch and Greene's snag was that Hill was playing center field and Greene was in left field. Which one was better? Check it out above, courtesy of the Detroit Tigers website.
