Heisman hopeful Jared Goff catches Brandon Crawford's ground-rule double

The ball that Brandon Crawford thwacked in the eighth inning of Thursday's Braves-Giants game bounced over the wall for a ground-rule double, scored a run that put San Francisco up 7-0 and ended up in hands of potential Heisman Trophy winner. Because in the stands at AT&T Park was Jared Goff, quarterback for the California Golden Bears.

Goff is a hopeful Heisman Trophy candidate for the upcoming 2016 college football season and a highly-touted NFL Draft prospect.

And hey, if the whole quarterback thing doesn't work out, maybe baseball's an option. He showed off pretty good hands on Thursday night, which he probably got from his father Jerry Goff, a former MLB catcher who played six seasons in the '90s with the Expos, Pirates and Astros.
