Masato Akamatsu of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp robs batter of a home run

That pretty much sums up the clip, right? Heh. Well, not quite. Go see it for yourself!

Scaled a 6ft+ tall completely vertical wall like a cat, tightroped across the top, backhanded the catch (!), and spun back down to the ground, all in one fluid motion. Incredible. INCREDIBLE!

Of course some of the ESPN regulars are already calling it the greatest catch ever. I'm usually wary of proclamations like that since they seem to come so frequently these days, but I think in this case it might just be true. Debatable at the very least.

Hell of a grab, but not even the best Japanese catch ever.

Someone on another message board mentioned that clip, but having now seen it for the first time I don't think I can agree. He pulls himself up with his off arm. Not quite as difficult IMHO.

He never touched the plate. And how come the sports media go on about how Rivera has 'lost a step' yet no one talks about Trevor Hoffman? That guy CLEARY has a fork sticking in him.
