Martin Maldonado knocks cover off a baseball

In April of last year, Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado hit a ground ball to third in a game against the Pirates.  Third baseman Pedro Alvarez noticed something was off about the ball as soon as he fielded it, but had the presence of mind to throw to first anyways.  Unfortunately for Alvarez, Maldonado’s hit had literally caused the cover of the ball to peel back, which prevented him from being able to put any speed on his throw.  As the broadcasters point out, Maldonado had literally knocked the cover off the ball!
