Minor Leaguer Flips Over Fence To Catch Ball For The Defensive Play of The Year (VIDEO)
Spectacular plays on the baseball field happen often, but not many involve flips like this.
Texas Rangers prospect Eric Jenkins had to go above and beyond to make sure a batter didn’t get another crack at the plate after that batter smacked a pitch into foul territory. Unfortunately for the hitter, Jenkins had some top notch speed and wasn’t afraid to get a bit dirty as he made the catch while flipping over the fence.
He even stuck the landing and delivered the ball back into play in the smoothest way possible.

“It’s been a crazy day,” Jenkins told MiLB.com, “I’ve never made a catch like that before. I’ve robbed a home run before, but that’s the best catch I’ve made in my career.”
