Byron Buxton makes incredible leaping catch in AL wild-card game (Video)
Byron Buxton made his mark on Tuesday’s American League wild-card game with an incredible leaping catch to rob Todd Frazier of extra bases.
During the bottom of the second inning, with the game tied 3-3, Frazier hit a fly ball to center field that sent Buxton back towards the wall. A few steps shy of the wall, Buxton left his feet to make a great catch prior to crashing into the wall and falling down on the warning track. Take a look below.

Buxton remained on the ground for a few moments before returning to his feet. He remained in the game.
