MLB Rookie outfielder Jo Adell on Sunday accidentally dropped the ball on the wall of the outfield, giving the opposing team a ‘home run’ against the Texas Rangers during a match in the Los Angeles Angels.
Nick Solak hit the ball hard in the bottom of the fifth inning, deepening Wright’s field and Adele began backpacking and seemed to be beat on it. The ball, however, ended up bouncing off his glove and onto the wall, allowing Engels to score a run.
Solak was initially awarded a home run, but then turned in a four-base error on Adele after consulting with official scorer Larry Bump with the Elias Sports Bureau.

Los Angeles eventually lost the game 7-3 and finished last in the AL West Division.

The news comes as the remainder of the MLB season is still in doubt due to Coronavirus concerns.
The league, in a memorandum sent to the teams on Wednesday, threatened to suspend repeat offenders who violated their new COVID-19 protocol.
