When we talk about home runs getting robbed at Marlins Park, we’re usually talking about the ballpark’s comfy dimensions resulting in super-long flyouts. Not so on Thursday night.
Perhaps predictably, Dyson’s robbery was the first in ballpark history:
Jarrod Dyson (@Royals) robs Miami’s Christian Yelich of a HR in the 1st inning.
It is the first HR robbery in Marlins Park history.

It’s worth noting that the Marlins moved in and lowered their fences over the winter, so Dyson had a more favorable environment working in his favor. Still, an outstanding catch is an outstanding catch.
