Mike Trout's sensational catch robs Nick Swisher of a dinger

Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels continues to amaze everyone with his defense and— for the second night in a row— he robbed the New York Yankees of a home run with a sensational catch by going up the wall.

The 20-year old left fielder crashed into the fence at Angel Stadium to take away what looked like a solo home run from Nick Swisher in the second inning of Tuesday night's game.

Trout— the son of former major-leaguer Jeff Trout— ran down Swisher's hit, collided with the wall and pulled down the ball with his glove dangling over the top of the fence before tumbling to the the ground.

He was greeted with high-fives in the Angels dugout.

The former New Jersey high school standout was the 25th overall pick of the Angels in 2009 and plays his section of the field with reckless abandon.  He's no slouch behind the plate either and is batting .310 with 14 RBIs.

Expect to see a lot of these highlights from this kid for years to come.
