We're at the end of Spring Training, so I guess the rules are a little more lax at this point. Mookie Betts, right fielder for the Red Sox was taking an interview with the announce team WHILE he was playing. Things got a bit sideways when a long fly to right came his way, and he quickly realized that he wasn't going to be able to track it down, adding his own commentary..."I ain't getting this one, boys." HA! I don't know if he hadn't been doing the interview if maybe he could have tracked it down, but it did make for a pretty funny moment. And, I'm a Yankees fan, so any missed play by the Red Sox is a win in my book. No matter who they're playing.
