Carlos Gomez climbs Tal's Hill to make incredible catch (VIDEO)

Minute Maid Park, the home of the Houston Astros, is also home to one of baseball's most distinctive features: Tal's Hill, an elevated patch of grass in deepest center field.

The hill — which juts back 436-feet—makes playing center field at the park harder than at any other stadium in the country.

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez had no such trouble with the hill Tuesday night; he navigated the slope and made a brilliant catch to rob Houston catcher Jason Castro of an extra-base hit.

Gomez is having an outstanding year at the plate and this catch just might be one of the top plays of the year.
