Ben Revere’s Snags Top Play on SportsCenter

Minnesota Twins’ Ben Revere scales the center field wall and robs Vladimir Guerrero of an extra base hit in pretty incredible fashion.   Back turned, both feet on the wall, and intense concentration led to the catch of the night.

“I saw the way my glove ran into the wall and I bounced off,” Revere said. “When I saw (Michael) Cuddyer and (Jason) Kubel, their jaws just dropped. … I looked in to make sure it didn’t come out. I was sort of like, I did! It didn’t come out! Wow!”

Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire was also quite impressed.

“That might be one of the best catches I’ve ever seen considering he ran 50, 60 yards to catch the ball,” Gardenhire said. “And then all the way over his head and jumping into the wall. That’s probably one of the best you’re going to see.”

The Twins lost 4-1 to the Baltimore Orioles.
