Jonathan Villar forgoes personal safety and leaps into the camera well for this catch
As humans, we're taught to protect our bodies. We don't run near pools and we tread carefully around ravines. But if you're a baseball player, your job is to catch baseballs -- no matter what.
1. Let the ball drop foul and return to third.
2. Leap headfirst into the unknown, risking all sorts of bruises along the way.
A non-baseball player likely takes the first option. Live to not feel pain another day. But Villar is a baseball player and did what a baseball player must.
While Villar made the catch, he wasn't able to get the throw to home to prevent
"It was a great play, and we'll take an out," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy after the game. "It's like a sac fly basically, but we'll take that out. It's better than letting it drop and let him keep hitting, for me."
