OMAHA–We’ve got a new front-runner for Best Defensive Play of the 2008 CWS. Kyle Shelton’s sliding catch in foul territory to end Fresno State’s fourth-inning threat was spectacular. Shelton slid into the wall, made the catch and held onto the ball even after his face hit the wall hard. He stayed down for several minutes while coaches and teammates gathered around him, but he eventually got up and jogged back to the dugout. Shelton’s catch stranded runners on first and second and kept the score 3-1 Fresno.
North Carolina went quietly in the top of the fifth, and Shelton has returned to left field as we enter the bottom of the inning.
