Dayton Dragons Fan Makes Catch Of The Year, Dives Into Fence

By         Posted in   Baseball


Seriously, look at how far that guy tracks the ball before making the grab at the Reds A-affiliate Dayton (O.) Dragons game. That’s not just catching a casual home run ball, that’s going Griffey Jr. for a $15 ball.

This gem happened early in tonight’s game against Lake County, according to fans who were tweeting that this is a Sportscenter Top 10 nominee.

We’ll go a little further – ESPY nomination for catch of the year. You don’t go face-first into a fence for a home run ball and not get an ESPY nomination. This is America. We respect such effort.

*Sidenote – How about the guy giving the ball to the kid. I’m in tears. Dayton better honor him by letting him throw out a first pitch. Do the right thing, Dragons management.
