Phillies Broadcaster Begs “No! No! No!” To Nick Castellanos, See The Video
John Kruk is a fan favorite around Philadelphia. This Phillies broadcaster in the bottom of the ninth inning wasn’t too happy with a decision that Phillies right fielder, Nick Castellanos, decided to do!
Phillies Broadcaster Not Too Happy, At First
Watch this video of him calling. Let me set this up for you…
It’s the bottom of the ninth, one out, runner on third. A ball is hit to right field and begins to fade into foul territory, Castellanos, who has yet to commit an error in right field this season, pulls himself into foul territory.
If he catches it, the player can then tag up and score, unless he can throw him out.
If he drops it (on purpose) the batter will bat again but the runner cannot run home on a dropped ball that lands foul.
He decides to catch it. John Kruk, at first, didn’t like that decision. But… then this happened!

Nick Castellanos, Heck Of A Play
Wow, a game-saving play. The Phillies ultimately ended up winning this game in extra innings, 6-5.
Here’s a fun fact about Nick Castellanos that you probably didn’t know. Of all of the eligible players (meaning they have played the league minimum games to be considered) in the National League, he is the ONLY player to not commit an error this season.
Now listen, we love Nick, but he is not known for his glove, more known for his bat. For him to be playing this well in the outfield, it’s pretty amazing. Nick, we thank you for your defensive efforts. GO PHILS!
