In August of 2017, Cleveland Indians outfielder Austin Jackson did something unbelievable.
He made a catch over the right-center field wall at Fenway Park that … well, it’s almost too hard to describe. What I do know is that he went heels over head, made the catch, saved a home run wound up in the bullpen, and, somehow, almost managed to land back on his feet. It’s easily one of my favorite catches of all-time (at least that I had the please of watching live).
Here, take a look for yourself:
There are no words to describe this catch.
