Maybin robs Wright

In his mind, Cameron Maybin has made the play “a hundred times.” On Monday, the Marlins 22-year-old center fielder actually did it in a game.

In the first inning, Maybin went back to the wall in center field, and made a leaping grab to rob David Wright of a home run at Digital Domain Park in  Port St. Lucie.

“How about that, it’s kind of cool,” Maybin said after the Marlins lost 7-6 to the Mets. “It hit my glove, and I couldn’t tell if I caught it or not. I felt it hit my glove. I pulled my arm back over [the wall], and it was in my glove. It was kind of cool.

“I’ve never, ever robbed a home run in all the years I’ve been playing.”

Maybin’s standout play came with two outs in the first inning. Anibal Sanchez had struck out the first two batters he faced on six pitches. Wright got a hold of a pitch, and on a windy afternoon, the ball kept drifting. Maybin at first didn’t think the ball was travel that far, but he heard right fielder Bryan Petersen yell, “Wall!”

“I think the wind definitely took it,” Maybin said. “I heard Petey say, ‘Wall!” at the last minute. I actually just reached my arm out, and it was over the wall. I just stayed with it. It was easier than I expected. I thought it was supposed to be harder than that.”

Ironically, the Mets were starting center fielder Gary Matthews Jr., who has made some of the most famous catches to rob home runs in history.

“He made the tough one, though,” Maybin said of Matthews Jr. “He made one of the toughest ones you’ll ever see.”

Asked if he thought about robbing homers.

“A hundred times, but it didn’t quite go like that in my head,” Maybin said. “It was more like Gary Matthews, running up the wall, and making a spectacular one like that. It saved a run. I’ll take it. Anibal was pretty pumped after that too.”

Coming off the field, no one knew if Maybin really had the ball, because he didn’t show it. As he was approaching the dugout the first base umpire asked for the ball.

“He asked me just to make sure I had the ball,” Maybin said.

About a week ago in a B Game in Jupiter against the Mets, there was an incident where an outfielder robbed a homer. Or did he? As he ran off the field, he never showed the ball, and some wonder if a catch was really made.

Maybin exited the game in the fourth inning for a pinch-runner when he was on third base. The reason he was taken out was precautionary. He has been dealing with a strained left groin, and he felt a little tightness on a wet field.

Maybin says he is fine and should play on Tuesday at home against the Nationals.
