This is what Albert Almora Jr. does, my friends. He just makes ridiculously good, incredibly complex catches:

Consider that not only did Almora have to track that ball over his shoulder – a ball that was struck at 105mph – he had to battle the wind moving the ball around, while also accounting for the unforgiving brick wall bearing down upon him. Then he had to time his jump to make the catch.
If you’re asking me, that was a more impressive catch even than the homer robbery last week in St. Louis, which was all kinds of impressive.
