Mitch Moreland wasn’t in the Boston Red Sox’s starting lineup Saturday night, but that didn’t stop the veteran first baseman from making an impact in Game 4 of the World Series.
With the Red Sox trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 in the seventh inning at Dodger Stadium, manager Alex Cora sent Moreland to the plate in the pitcher’s spot with two runners on and two outs.

Now it looks like Moreland is doing more amazing things, this time not from behind the plate with his bat, but in the clubhouse with his hands.

Of course he not only caught beers, he got beers tossed on him.

This is exactly how you celebrate. I know Steve Pearce won the MVP, but after this performance, I have to give the MVP to Moreland.
