Watch Austin Jackson talk about the best defensive plays of his career

Austin Jackson's outlandish home run rob at Fenway Park was one of the most bonkers defensive plays in recent memory. In fact, Jackson's unforgettable catch won him the Esurance MLB Award for Best Defensive Play of 2017. 


But Jackson's over-the-fence snag may not even be the best play of his career. Back in August 2011, when he was playing for the Tigers, Jackson made this laser-beam throw to nail the Indians' Kosuke Fukudome at home ending the game.

How does Jackson compare his two most memorable defensive moments? Check the video at the top of the post to see for yourself.
