VIDEO: Yasiel Puig makes one of the best catches you’ll see this year

May 22, 2014, 8:15 PM EDT

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig just made one of the best catches you’ll see this year. In the bottom of the second inning at Citi Field, Mets infielder Wilmer Flores smacked a fly ball off Zack Greinke which appeared destined to fall in right-center field. However, Puig went into a full sprint before diving to rob him of extra bases.

My words can’t really do it justice, so just watch it for goodness sakes:

I’m not sure how Puig made that catch without breaking his wrist or his arm. Just incredible. This play would have been more insane if Adrian Gonzalez managed to hold on to his throw to double off Lucas Duda. The throw beat him back to the first base bag, but the ball bounced out of Gonzalez’s glove. Still, pretty freakin’ amazing.

    I see they forgot to write the article showing his lack of knowledge on the infield fly rule tho.

      Maybe because nothing about this play has anything to do with an infield fly?

        “gettingpwned ”

        He knows the infield fly rule, he didn’t see the call, which was late. I could link to a number of news stories talking about this, or quoting Puig, Mattingly, or any number of others about it, but there’s no need, since it’s actually alos in the story of the link you provided.

    That was nuts. I’m always amazed dudes don’t wreck their wrists more often doing this.

    Haters will find something to complain about. They are losers.

    Anyone who says that was “routine” catch is:

    1) an idiot
    2) full of sh-t
    3) not an athlete
    4)all of the above

      At least I know the rules of infield fly. That was two base running errors in one game for him, that led to TWO outs. What is this, amateur hour??
