A player should be able to celebrate a great sliding catch, but it's tough to do that when he gets stuck underneath the fence.

California (Penn.) right fielder Chuck Gasti made a spectacular catch in foul territory against Mercyhurst in Game 2 of a PSAC doubleheader. While his teammates celebrated getting out of a bases-loaded jam, Gasti couldn't get his leg out from underneath the fence.

Gasti sent Busted Coverage an email to detail the situation, via Joe Kinsey:

I had a 99.9% identical play from 3 years ago which resulted in a broken knee-cap and a pretty busted up knee. The only difference between the two plays was concrete last time and a 4-inch gap below the fence this time. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I was not injured on the play!

Luckily, this great catch didn't have an unfortunate ending.
