Did This Minor League Centerfielder Make the Best Centerfield Catch Since Willie Mays in 1954?


The answer to the question in the headline is, “no.”

Still, you were more likely to click with a question in the headline. Now for the pertinent information.

Alonzo Harris, who shares a name with Denzel Washington’s character from Training Day, is a centerfielder for the New Jersey Jackals in the Canadian-American Association. During a recent game against the Rockland Boulders, Harris made this awkward catch as he ran towards the wall and fell down. The Boulders uploaded this video to YouTube with the title, “Greatest CF catch since Willie Mays 9/29/54.” Presumably because they didn’t want the guy who popped out to center to feel bad.
