The Mets and Astros were in the first game of their double header on Saturday. It was the first game the Astros played in Houston since Hurricane Harvey devastated the area.

Mets reporter Steve Gelbs was reporting a story on some heroic rescue efforts during the storm. While he was doing so, Mets centerfielder Juan Lagares hit a high chopper in his direction.

Gelbs didn’t miss a beat, and reeled in the baseball while continuing with his reporting duties.

 

 

 

Every reporter dreams of being able to make a play live on air, and Gelbs just set the standard. Calm, cool, collected and kept eye contact with the camera. Even when he flipped the ball to a fan in the stands was smooth.

Bravo Steve Gelbs, fantastic work out there. To every other reporter aspiring to be like Steve, the bar has been set high.
