VIDEO: Torii Hunter Goes Over Right Field Wall, Destroys Yankees Fan

The following video is absolutely incredible in so many ways. First, Torii Hunter makes a attempt at a catch, diving into the right field stands in an attempt to rob a Robinson Cano home run. The wall is short, yes, but Hunter goes all-out, laying out and diving over the wall to try and make the grab. He didn't just leap up to try and steal the home run, as we commonly see; he dove over the wall and into the seats.

But watch the video below and notice what else happens as Hunter dives into the stands. Take note of the people in the crowd (via Jimmy Traina). A second, slow-mo video can be found here.

Yes, Hunter takes out the man by the rail, who's an unfortunate casualty of a sure highlight reel play. Sometimes the fans have to make sacrifices, and this was one of those times. The poor man gave Hunter a nice landing cushion, but did so at the expense of his own body. And how could you script it better than Hunter running into a Yankee fan in Los Angeles?

All around, what an wild play. The dive over the wall, the collision and the reaction around Hunter as he tries to rob the home run is simply perfect.

Edit: My mistake. Corrected to add that this was a home run. Still a terrific video!
