FanPost Friday: What is the best catch you’ve ever seen in person?

Besides catching Mariners Fever, of course

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners
WHAT’S REALLY GOOD!?!
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, Dee Gordon pulled off a flying stab of a catch up the middle that ended any chance the Angels had of rallying a comeback.

Dee, how would you rate that catch?

I agree! Two very enthusiastic thumbs WAY up!

Okay, here’s this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What is the best catch you’ve ever seen in person?

Fellow olds, did you see any of Griffey’s storied catches in person? Tell your story. 20-somethings, how about some of Ichiro’s or Mike Cameron’s web gems? Folks of all ages, remember Brendan Ryan and Franklin Gutiérrez? Wow, they were dope. And hey, maybe the best catch you’ve seen wasn’t by a Mariners player. Maybe it was Mike Trout, Adam Jones, Billy Hamilton, or some no-name minor leaguer that you just happened to witness making the all-time diving catch of his dang life. Whoever it was and wherever it was, I want to hear about it. Please try to include photos or even video if you can.

As always, we’ll front page the best submissions over the weekend.

Go Mariners!
