Kyle Schwarber is many things, but the kind of guy who covers over 100 feet while tracking a pop fly into the stands and then leaping into those stands at near full speed to make a ridiculous catch … well, maybe you didn’t *think* he was that, too, but he is (via ESPN):
That is just a crazy catch. A ridiculous catch. My jaw is still open.

It was also a dangerous catch, especially for a guy who lost a season to a knee injury last year, but it’s not like you can really expect a guy to turn off that part of his aggressiveness in the moment. Schwarber saw that ball the whole way, and he was determined to get it. In an extra-innings game, you never know when a single catch might be the difference.
