"I didn't know which way to break at first, which way to turn," Morrison said. "Those you kind of want to let get over your head a little bit and that way you can run to a spot."
Morrison, with his back to home plate the entire time, made the spectacular catch that played a big part in Seattle's 7-5 win on Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.
Reliever Tom Wilhelmsen acknowledged the slick play with a tip of his cap.
"I'm glad I made the play because it was in a big spot for us," Morrison said.
Morrison contributed with his bat as well. He smashed a two-run homer in the fifth inning, while capping a two-run ninth with an RBI single after Brad Miller's homer off Royals closer Greg Holland snapped the 5-5 tie.
