The Yankees are trying to bust open the pennant race. On Thursday against the Toronto Blue Jays, Ivan Nova busted Russell Martin's catcher's mitt. The glove is currently the second Mitt that's busting in a race right now.
The webbing of the glove seems to have been completely torn apart. Maybe the Astros have been playing with broken gloves all year.
If that ball was a strike it probably would have hurt.
