Watch This Japanese Baseball Player Dive Face First Into A Wall To Make A Catch (Video)

If you thought Orlando Hudson’s diving grab into a wall along the first baseline at Sun Life Stadium yesterday was incredible, courageous and grueling all in one, you haven’t seen nothing yet.

Thankfully, Hudson was okay after his nasty collision with the wall.  I’m not so sure the same can be said for this Japanese player, who was running at full speed before diving face first into the wall to make an extraordinary catch on a foul ball.  Like Hudson, he too had to be carted off the field on a stretcher, but after watching his body crumple like an accordion in the video below, we should all be thankful that it was a stretcher escorting him off the diamond, rather than a body bag.
