It might take you a second to figure out what exactly is going on in the photo above. On first glimpse: Why is there an outfielder running through a kitchen? Is it another of those weird spring photos MLB teams take?
No. Spring training is funky, but not that funky.
Truth is, that's Cleveland Indians outfielder Carlos Moncrief tracking down a fly ball to right field during Wednesday's spring exhibition opener against the Cincinnati Reds. It just so happens the right field wall at Goodyear Ballpark has an advertisement for K. Hovnanian Homes, a homebuilding company in many U.S. markets.
Cool illusion, right? Moncrief did catch the ball. He did not go to the fridge and get himself a glass of lemonade afterward. Check out the full picture and you can see the warning track giving us a greater sense of what's going on.
