A's catcher Derek Norris just barely made the grab on this foul tip

In the second inning of Saturday's Blue Jays-Athletics game, Toronto center fielder Colby Rasmus barely made contact on a foul tip toward the glove of A's catcher Derek Norris. If Norris were to make the catch, Rasmus would strike out and the at-bat would be over.

Sure enough Norris got his glove on it and woaaaaaaahhhhhhhh ...

To make a catch like that takes quite a bit of focus and great instincts. We're guessing he and this fan might be distantly related:
