Amazing Catch Robs Home Run and Batter’s Will To Live
Derrick Salberg plays baseball, but after his game-saving catch during the first round of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) baseball championships, he may have a shot at Olympic high jumping.
In video provided by KLTV’s Longview Daily News, Salberg can be seen running back from left field as a ball is hit high, far and seemingly headed for the stands. The runner on third can briefly be seen trotting home ready to celebrate.
Salberg leaps up to nab the ball — stretching out the entire length of his 6’10” body — and we’ll let you enjoy the rest.
After the game, Salberg probably rounded the bases with several different female fans of the team. Home run.
