In terms of craziness, this post isn’t at the top of the all-timers club. That insane catch made by that high school soft ball player might be, but not this one.
Even still, there’s something so quietly hilarious about the way Willson Contreras foul tipped a pitch DIRECTLY into the home plate umpire’s pocket. Especially because the ump just handed the ball directly back to the catcher.
