Anthony Rizzo climbs Wrigley Field tarp to make amazing catch (VIDEO)

We all love seeing players leaping into the stands for a catch, but Anthony Rizzo just might have set the bar pretty high for all amazing catches in the future.

The Chicago Cubs first baseman tested the limits of the Wrigley Field playing area, and a little known Major League Baseball rule, to complete one of the wildest plays ever.

The acrobatic play happened in the sixth inning of Wednesday's Cubs 3-2 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers when Rizzo chased Ryan Braun's pop-up down the first-base line before hopping on the tarp and tumbling into the stands to make the catch.

The second best part of the play might be the Cubs fans who engulfed Rizzo who landed about three rows up. 

And because the nimble-footed Rizzo made the catch with one foot on the wall and not in the stands, it was ruled an out.

Betcha didn't know about that rule?
