Minor league outfielder stands like a statue at the warning track during deep home run

New, comment

During Monday's game between the Memphis Redbirds and Round Rock Express, the latter's Joey Gallo hit a deep home run to right field. It looked like everyone on the field knew the ball was gone, especially Redbirds right fielder Carlos Peguero, who prepared for Gallo's hit by standing at the warning track. Peguero never moved when Gallo hit a homer. He just stood there silently because there was no point in trying to chase the ball.

This is how I think his internal dialogue went during the moment:
