MUST SEE: Outfielder in Junior League World Series makes bid for catch of the year

0

We’ve seen a lot of spectacular catches across baseball this season, including more recently a string of highway robbery grabs from some of the game’s best outfielders. But none of them pale in comparison to the grab made by a youngster on Sunday.

And it happened right in our very own backyard! At the Junior League World Series (Ages 13-15) in Taylor, Michigan in the championship game, outfielder Jack Regenye of Kennett Square (Pennsylvania) goes back on a ball hit deep to center.

Sparky goes full-extension, over the fence to commit highway robbery on the batter for Chinese Taipei.

Watch his pitcher on the mound immediately after the ball is hit. He thinks the ball is a no-doubter home run. Perhaps the catch of the year by any player in any level of baseball this season.

Unfortunately for Regenye and his team, they fell 12-1 in the title game for the Asia-Pacific representatives from Shing-Ming Junior LL. Taiwan has now collected five straight JLWS titles and six in the last eight years.

But it’s Regenye’s highlight reel grab grabbing the headlines.
