Video: Dioner Navarro loses popup, covers his head

Well, here is something you don't see everyday in the big leagues.

Chicago Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro encountered some trouble when trying to locate a popup during Friday's game against the New York Mets.

The play came in the fourth inning when Mets hitter Marlon Byrd popped a ball straight up behind the plate. Normally, this kind of batted ball is virtually an automatic out. But not this time around, though.

Apparently, Navarro loses the ball in the lights on its trajectory down and immediately goes into self defense mode by ducking and covering his head. The ball eventually lands several feet away from Navarro and nearly strikes a Cubs player standing on-deck.

And this is why the Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908.
