Yankees Prospect Ben Gamel Makes Incredible Diving Catch in the Outfield (VIDEO)

Baseball Is Fun

Ben Gamel is a 23-year-old outfield prospect in the New York Yankees’ farm system, and he’ll likely return to AAA to begin the season, having worked his way up through the system since being a 10th round back in 2010. He actually really seemed to put it together in 2015 in his first go-around at AAA, hitting a robust .300/.358/.472 over 129 games.

If he had a glove to go with that bat, he might really be someone to watch this year.

Say … about that glove:

That is just an incredible catch. Full speed. Full extension. Perfect timing. Even Russell Martin had to stop, stand and admire Gamel’s work.

One catch, alone, won’t put a guy squarely on anyone’s radar, but this is about as close as it gets.
