This play is one of those remembered from when Canseco played with the Rangers.
It was the 1993 MLB season and José Canseco played in the Rangers’ right field. In a duel against the Indians, the Cuban went out to field a dangerous hit by Carlos “Café” Martínez, but was confused and the ball hit him in the head. After that it was a homer.
The confusing action can be considered the worst blooper ever for a field fielder.
Here is the video of the unusual action that turns 27 years old.

Because of this horrible fielding, many pranks have been played on Canseco. And it was also confirmation that it was better to have him in the lineup as a designated hitter.
