Watch: Jackie Bradley Jr slams into wall on amazing catch
Boston Red Sox centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. may be the best defensive outfielder in baseball to have never won a Gold Glove, and that could certainly change this year.
On Sunday, Bradley made one of the best catches of the year when he somehow chased down a ball in the gap. He caught the ball when it was well past his body and slammed into the Green Monster at Fenway Park.

We’ve grown accustomed to watching Bradley make incredible plays at this point, and that is why he remains in Boston’s lineup despite his batting average hovering around .200. He routinely makes plays that are candidates for catch of the year.
