Toronto Blue Jays left-fielder Rajai Davis made a spectacular leap against the left field wall at the Rogers Centre to rob New York Yankees third-baseman Casey McGehee of a sure home run on Sunday.
While the ball is in flight, Davis does a stutter-step, then patiently watches and waits before climbing the wall about four feet to make the grab. It is a vision of perfect timing.
The best part of the video is the view of the pitchers in the Blue Jays bullpen, who see the ball appear about 12 inches above the 10-foot wall, then suddenly get snagged by the 5-foot-9 Davis' glove.
Spud Webb couldn't get that much air.
The remarkable seventh-inning play couldn't have come at a better time for the Jays. The Yankees had been chipping away at the home team's 10-1 lead. McGehee's failed blast came with Curtis Granderson on second and, after Davis' cat-like play, the Yankees tacked on three more runs to make it 10-7.
