Austin Jackson made one of the most outstanding plays of the season Tuesday night

There are very few instances where we at Cut4 are left speechless, but there's a first time for everything.   

During the Indians-Red Sox game on Tuesday, Hanley Ramirez smacked a long fly ball, deep to center field. The ball could have been a home run … that is, until Austin Jackson had something to say about it.

Austin Jackson will make your homer (and himself) disappear. #glovework

Jackson made a ridiculous leaping catch over the wall and managed to somersault into the bullpen. This unbelievable grab made the home crowd in Boston roar.


And even better, Ramirez himself was left in complete shock.


The commentators said this may be the best catch of the season, and who are we to argue with that? 

It also reminds us of a catch that took place in 2013, when Torii Hunter almost robbed David Ortiz of a grand slam. Remember that? If not, here's a GIF to refresh your memory: 


As well as this sorcery by Jackie Bradley Jr. who snagged a hard-hit ball from Aaron Judge.
