Yankees OF Clint Frazier Hit A Ball Off The Tropicana Field Roof For An Out

A ball hits a speaker on the roof of Tropicana Field.

When baseball is played indoors, you sometimes see some funny bounces. What happened at Tropicana Field today was on a whole different level though.

With the score tied at 6 leading off the top of the ninth, New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier pinch-hit. After taking a strike and a ball against Tampa Bay Rays reliever Vidal Nuno, Frazier unloaded on a 1-1 offering.

He hit about a mile high in the air, where it hit a speaker attached to the roof of the stadium. Incredibly, that means the ball is still in play.

According to the Trop's ground rules, anything hit off of the "B ring" catwalk is a live ball.

Rays shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria knows this, and he stayed with the ball and caught it for an out.

That's a wild play. Frazier may have had himself a home run to put the Yankees ahead if the speaker didn't get in the way.

As it stands, the two teams are heading into extra innings now.
