It's no secret that Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Ben Revere is really, really fast.
For those who may not buy into Revere's elite quickness yet, please watch the incredible catch he made during the second inning of Monday's game at Cincinnati.
The play began when Reds third basemen Todd Frazier smacked an 0-1 offering from Cliff Lee deep toward the outfield wall in center. It appeared as if the ball was going to sail over Revere's head and result in extra bases for Frazier. However, Revere kicked on the burners and timed his leap perfectly to make one of the better acrobatic catches you are likely to see this MLB season.
Reds base runner Jay Bruce certainly didn't believe Revere would end up catching the ball, because he was halfway to third base when the grab was made, and was unable to retreat back to first in time to avoid falling victim to an improbable double play.
BEST OF MAXIM

Actually, I should say that most baseball teams (if not all) and fans were class acts last night, as moments of silence were held in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing at ballparks across the country. More specifically, a number of parks played “Sweet Caroline” as well, as the song, of course, is a staple of Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park tradition.But because...
