I know Mike Trout had that stupid catch a few weeks ago, but watch Rajai Davis climb this 15-foot wall.

Weird play, he has time to almost come to a complete stop to time that. Great catch.

Great catch, but no way in hell that wall is 15 feet high; 11 is my guess.

I don't know, it looked to be at least two Davises high, although the few online references I could find say it's only 10 feet.

Shades of Otis Nixon climbing the wall in Atlanta to rob Andy Van Slyke back in 1992.

I thought about DeWayne Wise's catch to save Beuhrle's perfect game.

I saw one on the MLB Network this morning. Roger Bernadina made an unreal catch running up Tall's Hill at Minute Maid Park this weekend as well.

Saw this one on MLB Network and yes, one of the best catches of the year. Big time hops for Rajai Davis.

Takes incredible timing to do something like that. I mean to not only scale the wall but to do it at the exact moment the ball gets to your glove is simply amazing.

Nice catch.

Yeah that seems about right. Think of a basketball hoop. It's easy to imagine an athletic pro leaping up and getting a glove fully over the rim. But 15 ft? Not so much. That would be one heck of a leap. That would be like getting your glove well over the backboard and then some. You'd have to have your waist up to the rim.
