Usually, when I’ve been away from a game and the Cubs get blown out, there’s little reason to go back the next morning and enjoy any particular moments. Shut it down and move on.
But, you know, this Tommy La Stella catch into the stands really was awesome and enjoyable. So, enjoy it:

The most impressive part there was that La Stella was trying to measure the approach of the wall, did the best he could, but still arrived at the wall a little sooner than he expected – you can see him get knocked off course slightly – but still managed to collect himself instantaneously to adjust and glove the ball.
The most enjoyable part there, of course, was Kyle Schwarber making sure to come all the way in for the hug. Close second was Joey Votto’s “OK, sure” reaction.
