Byron Buxton bounces off wall like a pinball after making ridiculous catch

This is so awesome and so painful!

Byron Buxton is one of the best defensive center fielders in Major League Baseball, and plays like this ridiculous catch against the Cleveland Indians is the reason why.

I’ve broken this absurd catch down into give five distinct phases:

Phase 1: The Launch

Phase 2: The Catch

Phase 3: The Impact

Phase 4: The Fall

Phase 5: The Letting Everyone Know I’m Still Alive

This is just simply amazing, and for him to just hop right up after an impact like that makes it even more impressive.
