Check out this amazing catch by Lower Columbia College’s Derrick Salberg

I’m not one to get caught up in all the internet hyperbole that’s thrown around, calling everything that’s great ‘THE BEST EVAHHH!!!’ without a second of thought, but this grab by Lower Columbia College’s Derrick Salberg has to be up there as one of the best catches ever made — certainly one of the best I’ve ever seen — especially once you consider the circumstances.

With his team clinging to a 4-2 lead with two outs and one on in the ninth inning of a first round game of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges tournament, Salberg went up and robbed a deep fly:

The images captured help give justice to just how incredible this catch really was: 

Not to take anything away from Salberg, some credit has to go to the extremely short fences, which allowed Salberg to propel himself over it like a high jump competitor. The effort itself would’ve been remarkable, but the fact that he managed to also make the catch is, well … just amazing.
