Long Island Ducks Outfielder Daniel Fields Featured on ESPN

Home run robbing catch highlighted in SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays

(Central Islip, N.Y., June 10, 2019) - Long Island Ducks outfielder Daniel Fields was highlighted in SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays segment on ESPN during their Sunday night and Monday morning broadcasts.

The three-year Atlantic League veteran made the cut after making an incredible catch during the Ducks game against the High Point Rockers on Sunday, June 9. Rockers catcher Myles Schroder hit a deep fly ball to right field in the first inning. Fields raced back to the wall, battled windy conditions, timed his leap perfectly and made the catch with his glove over the right field fence. The grab prevented High Point from taking an early lead in the ballgame.

Later that night, the catch was featured as the #4 play on SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays segment. It was showcased against the following morning in the same slot. Check out the grab, as seen on ESPN's SportsCenter, below:
