Top-rated draft prospect Nick Senzel dove into the dugout to make an incredible catch

Tennessee Volunteers junior Nick Senzel is the highest-ranked third base prospect and No. 14-ranked overall prospect for the 2016 First-Year Player Draft according to MLB Pipeline, mostly thanks to his bat.

Senzel's catch ended the inning, and the Volunteers went on to win, 13-4. Not a bad play to add to the ol' draft portfolio.
