When you first see Jiwan James' catch from Saturday's double-A contest between the Reading Phillies and the Bowie Baysox, you might think it's just your average, over-the-wall home run saving grab. But it's much, much more.
If you watch closely, you'll see that James misplays the ball at first. James whiffs on the ball as he jumps onto the fence, and for a split-second it appears as though batter Jonathan Schoop had himself a home run. But somehow, James uses his body to trap the ball against the wall, and he is able to grab it as he falls to the ground. In the process he loses his glove and his hat, but as you'll see, it's worth it.
Not a bad play for a guy who was drafted in the 22nd round as a pitcher.
