    Is that even physically possible? How does someone jump 10 feet into the air?

    What do you expect? It`s Japan, the land where ninja`s live and the impossible... Isn`t.

    Also, I`m pretty sure there`s a fan out there who`s PISSED because he didn`t get to catch that, lol.

    Thesphinx, he obviously runs up the back wall and jumps off of it to catch it. It`s a bit hard to see, but no, he doe not flat out JUMP to catch that.

    "Is that even physically possible? How does someone jump 10 feet into the air?"


    If you watch again, he took a step up the wall and then jumped off the top of the wall.

    best catch since the `70`s when that one guy threw his mitt in the air which intercepted the ball then caught them both! That`s banned now but it was brilliant at the time!

    It`s amazing that Japanese baseball hasn`t already surpassed American in every way. They love it so much more than we do.

    o.O

    This seems very similar to a viral video ad for Powerade or some other energy drink, where the little ball girl leaps off the wall to catch the ball. I really hope this is fake like that one was.

    Japanese players play in Major League Baseball. So do people from Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, South Korea, and Taiwan. IOW, everywhere baseball is played. That`s what makes it the World Series- the team that wins it is the best in the world.

    @billy62 he means teams, the teams in the world series are not from all over, they are from the american league and the national league, which means they`re almost all american teams (with the only exception being the blue jays)

    If he were a little more Manny Ramirez and less Jet Li, he would have grabbed a hot dog and beer and pee`d behind the fence while he was catching it.

    A cultural thing, perhaps. Japanese society is traditionally more restrained in public displays than the USA.

    Alternatively:

    Baseball. Serious business.

    Not as high as you might think. He uses the wall for traction. Jump, foot on wall, drive upwards from that foot, repeat. It`s far from easy, but a skilled person with the right footwear can get a fair way up a wall like that.

    Of course, doing that makes the catch far more difficult than if he was standing or even jumping for it. This is a huge display of skill.

    I love the casual applause from the crowd that just witnessed probably the greatest baseball defensive play they will ever see in person.
