Texas Outfielder Literally Flips Over the Wall for the Catch

Baseball Is Fun

Texas outfielder Murphy Stehly put on a show in Friday’s Super Regional game against ECU! The redshirt senior got the Longhorns on the board with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, but his impressive afternoon was far from over.

Stehly also made a spectacular catch as he flipped over the fence into the Texas bullpen to end the fifth inning.

I love how Texas reliever Tristan Stevens doesn’t even budge from the chair throughout the entire flip and landing but jumps up to celebrate with Stehly after he gets back to his feet. Hey, what are teammates for, right?

And then, in the next half-inning, Stehly tried his best to trim the ECU lead by going yard for the second time in the game.

Texas would tie the game up at seven before ECU went on to score six unanswered in a 13-7 win in Game 1 of their Super Regional best-of-three series.

Regardless, Stehly had himself quite the afternoon!
