No Hyperbole, Austin Jackson Had One Of The All-Time Great Catches Last Night


Far too often are sports highlights labeled as the greatest you’ll ever see, but this highway robbery by Cleveland Indians outfield Austin Jackson may just be one of the greatest baseball plays I’ve ever seen.

With the Cleveland Indians up 7-5 in the bottom of the fifth, the Red Sox Hanley Ramirez sent a deep shot towards the bullpen, what looked like would be an assured home run.

Until Jackson intervened with one of the greatest robberies you’ll ever see.

And now the reverse, more impressive angle:

And while the Fenway crowd has never been considered the most friendly in sports, the fans were so impressed with Jackson’s play they gave him a standing ovation while it played on the big screen.
