Freddy Galvis Made an Amazing, Bare-Handed, Over-the-Shoulder Catch!

Baseball Is Fun

Given how long his career has been, but how poorly he’s hit over the years, Freddy Galvis is mostly a glove-first shortstop. Then again, through his first 22-games with his new team, the Blue Jays, he’s hit quite well: .310/.333/.536 (131 wRC+).

And even more impressively, his defense is clearly still at the top of his game.
Watch as he makes a running, bare-handed, over-the-shoulder grab for the final out of the second inning of Saturday’s contest against the A’s.

It reminds me of the famous Kevin Mitchell catch, and that’s one we’ve been talking about for years:
