MUST SEE: Ex-Tiger Austin Jackson with the catch of the year

Former Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Jackson endeared himself to fans when he made a spectacular catch to preserve Armando Galarraga‘s (near) perfect game on that fateful night in Detroit in 2010.

Now, as a member of the Cleveland Indians, he’s added an even better highlight to his repertoire.

With Cleveland leading the Boston Red Sox 7-5 in the bottom of the fifth, Jackson went over the bullpen wall to rob Hanley Ramírez of a lead off home-run. The catch was so spectacular that the Red Sox fans in attendance at Fenway Park applauded, even though it robbed their own team. It sure isn’t often you see the hometown fans cheer the opposition. 

“I just wanted to try to get back to the wall and try to read it,” Jackson said. “I got back and I tried to get to the fence first. When I jumped and caught it, I realized I was about to take a tumble to the other side. Luckily, I was able to grab the fence a little bit and I flipped over.”

Jackson has a knack for robbing hitters of home-runs. According to ESPN, it’s his fifth such robbery.

Unfortunately, the catch might remind Tigers fans of Torii Hunter‘s failed bullpen-flipping catch, coincidently against the Red Sox in the 2013 ALCS – also at Fenway. Jackson certainly remembers that play well.

“As my feet were flipping over, for some reason I was thinking about that same play that I’ve seen with Torii,” Jackson said.
