Although this one goes to Hardy, kudos to Schoop for the barehand catch! Also, Hardy should have caught the ball in the first place.
4. Greg Bird (New York Yankees)
The twenty-two year old rookie is filling in for Texiera (expected to return this week from injury) and he's showed some solid performance at the plate. There has been times where the inexperienced first baseman was a bit rusty with his defense, but what a catch on that play!
3. Brandon Guyer (Tampa Bay Rays)
I'm not sure if this one was going over the fence...but still a very nice leaping catch by Guyer especially with runners on first and third. The Rays beat the Tigers 8-0.
2. Dustin Ackley (New York Yankees)
Another great catch by the Yankees...this one by Dustin Ackley! He robbed a potential home run from Steve Pearce. You could see the disappointment in Pearce's face after Ackley made the catch! Too bad the Yankees lost 5-3.
1. Chris Coghlan (Chicago Cubs)
Not quite Derek Jeter, but still an amazing catch by the Cubs left fielder! It's always great to see players go all out on these fly balls. And of course, none of the Cardinals fans helped him get up. Despite Coghlan's catch that carried him over two rows of seats, the Cubs lost to the Cardinals 4-3.
