Uptons collide on fly ball, act like brothers afterwards

Communicating for a fly ball can be difficult, but you'd think two outfielders would be better at it if they were also brothers.

Well, B.J. and Justin Upton proved that theory wrong during their game against the Mets on Tuesday, crashing into each other during pursuit of a fifth-inning popup. B.J. still managed to make the catch and gave his bro a playful shove as they headed back to the dugout.

I wonder how those two work together in other areas:
