Inspired By @MLB… Some Completely Fab Leaps

This morning, MLB tweeted, “Greatest LEAP ever? RT if you agree, reply with your favorite leap …”.  While that leap is pretty fab, I’m not convinced it is the best ever.  So, in honor of this special February 29th (the first time we’ve celebrated that on this blog!), I’ve decided to make a little gallery of what I consider to be some of the best baseball leaps.  Some are of catches, some of homers and some are of those beautiful things called World Series victories.  I think the most priceless parts of these photos are the facial expressions, but I gotta admit, these guys have some pretty fantastic leg power too.

So, what is your favorite leap?  Since it is a day that doesn’t really exist, I think we should debate completely fun and mindless things like this.  ‘K?  ‘K.

Happy Leap Day!

  1. I am a big fan of Aaron Rowand’s leap at the beginning of the 2006 season. The one where he ran into the wall of the Zen, broke his nose and still caught the ball. It didn’t mean anything in the grand scheme, but it proved to me that Rowand is a heck of a ball player.

  2. Kirby Puckett, the great Twins’ center fielder, made an amazing high above the wall catch to prevent a home run in the 1991 (maybe 1987?) World Series. I have tried to find some video but failed.
