It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... Superfan Chris making a leaping catch

If you've watched the Royals at any time during the last decade, you've probably seen Superfan Chris. The mild-mannered Chris Coats, who attends every Royals game, is transformed into something much more when he arrives at Kauffman Stadium and dons his traditional Zubaz pants and cape. 

The Superfan played hero once again Tuesday, leaping high into the air (if not quite over a building in a single bound) to prevent a foul ball from landing uncaught and unloved on the cruel concourse concrete.

So thank you, Superfan, for standing for truth, justice, and the George Brett way.
