Watch this Pennsylvania Junior League center fielder leap over the fence to prevent a home run

While Major Leaguers from the Cardinals and Pirates were spending their day basking in the glow of the Little League World Series, the Junior League World Series was taking place in Taylor, Mich.

During the fourth inning against Chinese Taipei, Pennsylvania center fielder Jack Regenye delivered the highlight of the weekend as he leapt straight over the outfield wall to rob a home run:

After some initial confusion whether the catch did or didn't prevent a home run, the official ruling was that Regenye had indeed saved a run.

When you have ups like that, the outfield wall becomes more a suggested boundary to the field than a hard-and-fast barrier. With Regenye roaming the outfield, opposing hitters would do well to consider that going forward.
