NC State outfielder Brett Williams led the Wolfpack to a 9-2 victory over New Mexico State on Wednesday with a 2-for-3 showing from the plate. He drove in three of NC State’s nine runs, but it is the play Williams made in center field that you will be seeing on “SportsCenter” for months to come.
There are diving catches, and then there are diving catches that involve a somersault mid-air. As you can see, Williams pulled off the latter to rob extra bases.
According to the NC State athletics website, Williams is only six games into his return from ACL surgery and is batting .458 with three homers. I think it’s safe to say his recovery is going well. The catch Williams made is right up there with this catch as one of the greatest we’ve ever seen.
