WATCH: Mets’ Lagares Robs A Home Run
New York Mets centerfielder Juan Lagares took the meaning of highway robbery seriously in the Mets matchup against the Washington Nationals on Saturday.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Nats hitter Jayson Werth was at the plate. Werth smoked a deep drive to center but Lagares leaped up and made the catch to rob him of a home run.
It was a sensational catch for the young center fielder.
Here is a clip of Lagares’ leaping catch at the wall:
