International League Third Baseman Flips Over Rail, Into Dugout to Make Incredible Catch (Video)

Minor league game. Major league catch.

Gwinnett Braves third baseman Alden Carrithers took care of the hot corner — and then some — on Sunday in an International League game against the Norfolk Tides when he redefined the meaning of “all out” on a foul ball that came down near the third base dugout. Carrithers drifted over to make the snag, then ended up going cleats-over-head as he extended his glove into the dugout to polish off the catch.

This was no ordinary dugout dive — there’s quite a dropoff below the padded railing and the bare concrete floor on this bench. Hamptonroads.com reported that Carrithers stayed in the game — and drew rave reviews from his opponents.

Check out Carrithers’ crazy play.
