40 GIFs of Baseball Fans Making Amazing Catches

by: Esteban On  Thursday, August 14, 2014

gifs of baseball fans making amazing catches

Most of the time, the best part of a baseball game happens on the field. Maybe it’s a pitcher throwing a complete game shutout. Maybe it’s a light-hitting utility infielder clearing the bases with a standup triple. Or maybe it’s something entirely unrelated to baseball, like the catcher on one team leaving a snack at home plate for the catcher on another team.

However, every once in a while, the best part of a baseball game happens up in the stands when a fan makes a fantastic play. And today, with this here list, we’re celebrating those moments. So take a look. Assuming your boss doesn’t catch and fire you, you won’t regret it.
