There are highlight-reel catches, and then there’s whatever the heck Mookie Betts did Monday.

In the first inning of the first home game of the season, the Boston Red Sox centerfielder defied logic and the law of gravity by leaping to rob Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper of a would-be home run. Betts skied and nabbed the ball, which was ticketed for the bullpen, before crashing into the hard outfield wall.

Betts’ shoulder is going to ache for a while, but the pain will gradually go away as he sees this catch replayed a few dozen times.
