Submitted by: fancylad 8 years ago Sports

Outfielder makes an unbelievable catch, but does it still count as a home run or not?

The best I`ve done was in kickball, and I simply got hit in the face with the ball, it bounced straight up, and I still caught it.

"An Oscar-winning catch". That was an Oscar-winning comment--if they hand out Oscars for idiotic sports commentators as well as actors and good catches. (Although on second thought, there`s so much competition in that category that he might not win it.)

Prime; I have to agree, your attitude is really annoying. Worse than that of Devi5000.

I`d have liked to see more footage of the wall area, did he jump behind it, run for life then catch it? It would have been alot more impressive if we saw more than just a jump, but still a great catch.

And ravster look at any Eric Byrnes play. That was just a regular diving catch that happened to be over a wall

it is an out for the same reason that a fan reaching out over the wall to catch a ball counts as a home run.

why cant i seem to find the video i want on the internet, its over the college baseball player who leaps over the right foul wall and makes a catch, it was an espy, but i cant find it.


anyways, the ruling is, in order to be considered a catch, a part of the players body must still be on or over the field when the ball is touched/caught. thus, if he caught the ball and his feet were still over the field, its an out, if he caught it after completely over the wall, home run. same can be true of foul balls, but at any time, if the ball is over the fence, its a free-for-all, the crowd has as much right to the ball as the player.

that is not that great of a catch. Good, but the low wall made it alot easier.

ok, found it at another site:

batter is out by the way-- doesnt matter where you catch it (although the ump didnt see it, so that part is a judgement call). you can also assist in homeruns too:

i actually was watching that game when it happened (wow, back in 1993- i was 11 and i still remember it!) Go Tribe!!

i think that it would be an out, he caught it while it was still in the air, but i dont know if he was behind the fence or not when he caught it.... but anyways, he caught it before his feet touched the ground... out i think...

Damn!
That was nice.
The most I`ve seen from our softball team is some girl scaling the tall fence to get a ball.
