Basket Catch (1924)

“The rally died when Bancroft made a ‘basket’ catch of Griffith’s high pop fly.” The Boston Herald, May 7, 1924, p22

“‘Spark Plug’ Matthews of the Washington Senators is the only outfielder who bags a majority of the flies that come his way with the ‘kangaroo catch.’ This is a variety of the ‘basket catch,’ the tummy of the player being used to assist his glove in snaring the ball.” The Salt Lake Tribune, July 6, 1924, p16
