Angels broadcaster Jose Mota makes spectacular foul-ball catch

Angels broadcaster Jose Mota makes a remarkable foul-ball catch while working in the booth

When heading to the ballpark, what is the No. 1 rule?

Always bring your glove.

Former major leaguer and Angels Spanish-language radio color commentator Jose Mota certainly knows the rule, and he makes sure to abide by it even when he's working in the booth.

During the Angels' 3-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, Mota made a stunning catch on a foul ball hit by Mike Zunino. Mota quickly swipes out his glove to mitt the ball, saving play-by-play Amaury Pi-Gonzalez from possibly getting pelted.

With those kinds of reflexes, perhaps Mota still has what it takes to play professional ball.
