Byron Buxton Makes Amazing Diving Catch

Monday, June 10, 2013 9:47 PM

The title of this video is "Byron Buxton Diving Catch" but I literally did not believe it until the second he dove and caught it. That's just an unreal amount of ground to cover in that small amount of time. He was the Number 2 overall pick last year for the Twins and he's been on an absolute tear both defensively and offensively. He's kind of flown under the radar, but this highlight has definitely thrust him into the spotlight. To be honest, I haven't heard much about him up until this catch, which is surprising. Through June 10, this kid is hitting .350 with 7 homeruns and 26 stolen bases. One scout has said he's the "best player I ever saw." That's some incredible praise. We're really looking forward to what the kid brings to the table in a few years.
