Josh Reddick climbs fence for sick ‘Spiderman’ catch (Video)
A’s right fielder Josh Reddick has attracted plenty of attention with his powerful bat this season, but he’s also brought the leather on plenty of occasions. In the bottom of the 2nd of Oakland’s 16-0 shellacking of Toronto on Wednesday, Reddick climbed the fence in right field and hung off it to make a “Spiderman” catch that robbed Travis Snider of an extra-base hit. Reddick didn’t actually need to hang off the fence to make the catch, but he got back early enough in case the ball was headed over the wall. Reddick had an RBI double and has bashed 21 home runs this season.
As awesome as the Spiderman catch was, it may not have been Reddick’s best of the season. He also had this awesome diving grab earlier this month to rob Ichiro:
Of course when it comes to Spiderman catches, nothing will ever top this.
