Dunlap's Trickery

A very amusing joke was played on the Altoona catcher by Dunlap.  In a recent game of St. Louis vs. Altoona, there was a foul ball knocked close to the catcher, but near a bench.  The Altoona catcher was just about putting his hand on it, when Dunlap hollowed, "Move that bench, quick!"  The catcher looked to see the bench and missed the ball.
