Erik Kratz Chipper Jones Collision At The Plate (video)

Atlanta Braves’ Chipper Jones, is called out at home plate as he collides with Philadelphia Phillies catcher Erik Kratz, during the fourth inning of a baseball game on Friday, Aug. 31, 2012, at Turner Field in Atlanta.

Chipper tanked into Kratz at full speed, catching the catcher a bit unprepared for the huge collision. Kratz was sent airborne, but it didn’t matter. He remarkably held onto the ball and Larry was sent back to the dugout without a run.
