Toronto Blue Jays centerfielder Kevin Pillar is known for risking life and limb to make spectacular plays on synthetic turf. Of all the high-flying grabs he’s made in his career, the one he turned in Monday night may be the best.
Pillar raced deep into right-center to chase down a Mookie Betts line drive and leapt through the air like a superhero to take away extra bases.
The reaction of pitcher Marcus Stroman sums it all up. Just pure delight and astonishment. Even for Pillar, this was incredible.
