Cubs rookie Brett Jackson crashes into fence for awesome catch (Video)

Cubs rookie Brett Jackson made a highlight reel catch on Friday to rob Andrew McCutchen of a hit, but he didn’t escape without injury.

Jackson went head-first into the center field fence in Pittsburgh for a spectacular catch, but he came away with some cuts on his face, a bleeding and bruised knee, and he left the game.

MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat reports that Jackson said he was “seeing stars” after crashing into the fence, which could signify a potential concussion.

Jackson had X-rays and is listed as day-to-day. He also produced this fabulous quote that is sure to further endear him to Cubs fans:

“I’ll go through a wall for the team.”

The last time we saw a similar play was when Matt Kemp crashed into the fence at Colorado. He missed the next two games. Jackson is probably hoping that’s all he misses, too.
