Ladies and gentlemen, we have a catch of the year candidate.

On a well-hit ball by the Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury with the bases loaded, Detroit Tigers centerfielder Ezequiel Carrera raced back, laid out just in front of the warning track and caught the ball in the heel of his glove during the third inning of Monday's Yankees-Tigers game. A run scored on what ended up being a sacrifice fly, but Carrera easily saved at least one run with the outstanding grab.
