Check Out This Catch By Jackie Bradley Jr.

It’s been a tough year for the Red Sox, who, despite being the defending World Series champions, entered this evening dead last in the American League’s East Divison at just 39-51, 10.5 games out of first place. It’s not likely that they’ll repeat barring a dramatic charge after the All-Star Break.

But at least they have this incredible play to hang their hat on.

Former South Carolina Gamecocks outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr., a two-time NCAA champ while in Columbia and now playing with the Boston Red Sox (where he won a World Series last year), just made this spectacular catch in right center during Boston’s game against the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park.

Take a look and decide for yourself whether or not it’s one of the best catches of the 2014 Major League Baseball season:

Bradley is hitting just .220 with a home run and 24 RBI in his sophomore season, but great defensive plays like the one he made tonight will only help his cause in what’s otherwise been a fairly forgettable season for him and his team.

But I’m sure he’d like it if the team would string some wins together, as well.
