Nothing to see here. Just one of the best catches of this, or any, high school baseball season.
Austin Trace, a pitcher on Canal Winchester’s (Ohio) baseball team, casually snagged a line-drive out of the air with his bare hand Tuesday.
The junior hurler used Twitter after the game to announce his big play. He shared a video of the catch the next day.
Canal Winchester lost the game against Bishop Watterson 2-1, but Trace, who threw a no-hitter in his previous start, according to USA TODAY, might triumph over the long term.
Trace’s catch is making the rounds on the Internet and is likely to feature on an upcoming edition of “Top 10” on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Kids are so cool these days.
