Someone get that announcer a contract!

I wonder if that was the way it was aired live or if that was a special edit to cut to the camera in the booth.

If that's how it was shown live, then everyone deserves some credit. It's not just that he caught it, it's the wherewithal to show him catching it that's almost equally impressive, 'cause that was a neat video.

Didn't even flinch.

Yeah, but can he get on base?

Joe Buck wouldn't have attempted that.

First thing I noticed. I bet he was a pitcher once. Also, those types of fouls usually have a lot of rotation. Barehanding it clean was nice.

The easiest place to catch a ball is at the top of its arc. Looks neat, but is actually easy.

Yes. At the top of the arc, it has the least momentum and is all potential energy. The ball is hard to catch when it is almost all kinetic energy.

Never change. Just as the sun rises in the East, you manage to be an asshole on the Sports tab.

Best catch I ever saw.  Minor league park.  Lazy pop foul, heading towards a guy reading a newspaper.  Guy glances up, casually catches it and goes back to his reading.

I just don't feel a need to overcompliment things or people. Honestly, as was mentioned earlier...if those production cuts were made live, those are WAY more impressive.

Eh, quoted the wrong person. Whoops. At least I wasn't actually an asshole in either of my comments, unlike others in this thread.

Or the guy on his phone.

Look, y'all, if you think it's hard to catch a ball you saw come off the bat at the top of its arc, as it comes straight to you...either I'm wayyyyyyy underestimating my athletic ability or you're overestimating the amount it takes to make that catch.

It looks cool, but really, it's a pretty easy catch I'd expect any adult who played sports at the middle school level to make most of the time.

I don't know how else to say it, but IAmRightis right.

A pop-up coming straight towards you like that, anyone who's run a single fundamental glove drill is either going to do the same, or actively fight to not react that way. Like the commentator said, "my hand hurts so bad right now"- it's not a planned reaction. It's just a half-step above instinct.
