Flowler jumps fence to fetch his glove
Dexter Fowler, above, wasn't about to leave his glove behind.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Normally outfielders go over the wall to bring back homers. Colorado Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler scaled it to get his glove back.
Fowler lost his glove after slamming into the wall while chasing down a long drive by Kansas City's Jose Guillen in the seventh inning on Sunday. The umpires were ready to start the game again after Guillen's triple, but Fowler had to wave them down with his bare hand to get their attention.
With no one else to get his glove, Fowler hopped the wall and disappeared.
After a few seconds, his glove popped over the wall onto the field. Then a ball sailed into the stands. Finally, Fowler appeared, drawing cheers from the fans and prompting a slight grin from him.
