Brett Gardner does his own incredible version of Derek Jeter's 'The Dive' (VIDEO)

Brett Gardner tracked down a ball in foul territory and made an incredible catch at Yankee Stadium Wednesday night, flipping over the left field wall and tumbling into the stands for the out.
In a way, it's sort of reminiscent of Derek Jeter's legendary "The Dive." And although Gardner didn't make the head-first grab against the Red Sox or come up with a bloodied face — it's still a fantastic play.

And the Yankee leftfielder's catch gives us a chance to relive one of Jeter's most unforgettable career highlights (below) before he heads off to retirement.

Or maybe it will better remind you of Jeter's "The Catch" in the 2001 ALDS against the A's.

Either way — well played Brett.
