Ever since the day the Detroit Tigers selected OF Riley Greene with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, we have heard nothing but good things.
Not only has Greene put on amazing batting practice displays at Comerica Park but he has also shown that he can cover some serious ground.
Check it out as Greene reaching over the left-field fence and takes away what would have been a sure home run off the bat of C.J. Cron.
Let’s just hope he did not hurt his arm on that one!

Following the game, Greene commented ono the spectacular grab.
Riley Greene: "I was able to get to the fence. I just jumped, reached over, just hoping it was there. And I got it, which was pretty cool." https://t.co/2vwSQ9I19A
