Leigh Barratt didn't snag any game home runs last season, but in 2012 he's off to a great start. Last week at PETCO Park he snagged his first gamer on a homer hit by Brayan Ruiz.
"It rolled on the warning track and into the grass right in front of me," he said. "Jeremy Hermida flipped it up and I out jumped a couple of guys and gloved the ball. It's preseason and it doesn't count, but it's a good start for 2012 since I didn't get ANY homers at all last year."
Barratt has snagged 17 career gamers and also is currently just 38 balls shy of 1,000 total balls snagged in his career.
