    Well I am a Houston native and an Astros fan so first of all I want that catcher tested for steroids,

    Second of all, Who gives a crap... ASTROS KICKED THEIR BUTTS ON THAT GAME.

    lytle_lytle don`t be a hick...It`s just a spectacular catch, seriously.

    On a completely different note....would that have happened if the catcher hadn`t been black?...because I seem to recall Woody Harrelson saying something about white men not being able to jump like /that/

    Holy sh*t!!!! That was the best catch I`ve ever seen. He pushed off the top of the wall to get even higher. Amazing.

    lytle lytle is right though, that wouldve been lamb`s 2nd homer that game, he was actually going for a cycle (for you none baseball people thats hitting a single, a double, a triple and a home run). all he needed was a single, now does that tell you how that game was going? and its not like mike lamb (the batter that was robbed) was upset about it, when the centerfielder got on 1st base in the following inning, he congratulated him on that awesome catch. it was a nice catch, but it was too late to make a difference in that game.

    astros rule!

    Baseball is best viewed on the highlight reels. I can`t imagine watching a whole game because of all the breaks in between.

    Anybody remember Ichiro`s catch (at the start of this year I think) where he jumped up and hung on the wall for a few seconds before making the catch? That was better than this IMO, but still a sweet catch nonetheless.

    It was okay. If you want a really good catch, check out Wichita State`s Matt Brown from the 2005 ESPY awards. Over the wall catch.

    IkeRay- But that`s not the point of the post. It`s not a video of the Astro`s being demolished because of one catch....It`s a video of one great move by one player.

    He wouldn`t have been so angry about it if it was the exact same thing but an Astro`s "CHECK HIM FOR STEROIDS" or "who gives a damn!"

    i thought it was a great catch, but insignificant nonetheless. and its astros, no apostrophies.

    im not angry about it, he`s a good player for having the hand eye coordination to make a catch like that. many players attempt to do over the wall, homer stealing catches, but arent able to pin-point where the ball is going.

    and it IS spiderman, not superman because he climbed the wall, he didnt fly.

    He didn`t jump that high. He jumped and planted his foot on the wall for extra height. Even the announcers said so. Watch it again people who think he really jumped that high.

    You must be a sox fan, tony.
    I had to make a profile just to comment on this because there are way too many people here who are saying they`ve seen better catches...
    As a huge baseball fan, I can say that this is one of the 3 best catches in the history of Major League Baseball.
    The other two are Willie Mays over the shoulder, and Kris Benson someone catching Anna Benson for a few years :-)
