Colorado Rockies: Was the “tarp catch” Nolan Arenado’s greatest play?

On April 14, 2015, the Colorado Rockies were in San Francisco to take on the Giants.

What happened next was a play that is still talked about to this day. Take a look…

It isn’t just the fact that Arenado made the catch, but he also had the instincts to gather himself and throw back to third in an attempt to get the runner trying to advance.
