First, Masato Akamatsu made this Spider-Man catch on August 4.
Sunday it was Soichiro Amaya's turn.
I especially love the reaction of the pitcher, Yuuki Saitoh. You can tell the game was in Japan because the fans actually stepped back and let Amaya catch the ball instead of reaching over him to try to catch it themselves.
There are a couple of crazy things going on with these two catches:
- The same pitcher was on the mound.
- The catches were made against the same team, the Yokohama BayStars.
Thanks to NPB Tracker for tweeting about Amaya's catch. Perhaps Twitter is useful after all.
