VIDEO: Jackie Bradley Jr. takes flight for outstanding catch

Jul 9, 2014, 8:05 PM EDT

They say humans can’t fly. Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. begs to differ

JBJ entered play Wednesday with a weak .220/.302/.311 season slash line, but dude has range.

    That’s a crazy good catch. Now if only his bat could be half as good!

    Jackie,

    Great catch and way to NOT let your bat affect your fielding.

    Good luck kid.

    If JBJ can’t hit better than he has so far, it won’t matter if he really can fly.

    It was a very well read route to the ball and a fine catch.
    But: he “was in the air forever!!”??
    OK, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you 20,000,000 times not to exaggerate. Sorry to be a downer but on the slo-mo replay he was in the air for less than 2 seconds. At real speed, less than 1 second.

    After the catch, the Sox radio announcer commented that if he could start hitting, he might get a gold glove at some point. I’m not sure if he realized what he was saying, but that seems to be what the gold glove has become.

    A few more plays like this and I’ll finally be able to stop always thinking of Jackie Rogers, Jr instead every time someone says Jackie Bradley, Jr. He’s building an actual identity.
