Sometimes I see a play that I just know is sufficiently awesome that I want everyone else to see it. That’s really all this is.
Watch and enjoy this catch:
That is just a full-on, 100% commitment to jumping into the net for the ball, and trusting that it will hold. The timing of the leap is perfect, too. Such an impressive play.
With all the netting around the fields these days, I am actually a little surprised that we haven’t seen a catch like this yet. Which is not to say it wasn’t an incredible catch! I just figured we would see more of these kinds of attempts.
Then again, I suppose it requires a pop up that comes down in just the right spot for it even to be possible to catch the ball, going into the net, without the ball actually hitting the net first.
