Found August 12, 2012 on The Other Paper:
Toronto Blue Jays  left-fielder Rajai Davis made a spectacular leap against the left field wall at the Rogers Centre to rob New York Yankees third-baseman Casey McGehee of a sure home run on Sunday.

While the ball is in flight, Davis does a stutter-step, then patiently watches and waits before climbing the wall about four feet to make the grab.  It is a vision of perfect timing.

The best part of the video is the view of the pitchers in the Blue Jays bullpen, who see the ball appear above the 10-foot wall, then suddenly get snagged by Davis' glove.



The remarkable seventh-inning play couldn't have come at a better time for the Jays.  The Yankees had been chipping away at the home team's 10-1 lead.  McGehee's failed blast came with Curtis Granderson on second and, after Davis' cat-like play, the Yankees tacked on three more runs to make it 10-7.
