Twins ballboy makes ridiculous catch [VIDEO]
"That's a highlight reel effort by the ballboy!"
A catch made during yesterday's Twins game was so good, it made SportsCenter's "Top Plays."
But the snag wasn't the work of an actual ballplayer. Instead, it was made by ballboy Paul Neshek, who demonstrated some serious ups while getting high to catch a foul ball careening toward the third base-line seats.
Here's the video:
Neshek is actually the younger brother of quirky former Twins pitcher Pat Neshek, who now pitches for the Oakland A's.
"No fricken way...holy cow what a catch," Pat Neshek wrote on Twitter after seeing the video. "My brother makes ESPN's Top Plays & is now signing autographs."
