Belt tumbles over railing to make amazing grab

The fans had just begun to sink into their seats at AT&T Park on Saturday when they got their first glimpse of stellar playoff baseball.

In the second at-bat of Game 1 of the National League Division Series between the Reds and Giants, Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart popped a ball into foul territory down the right-field line, and San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt made the catch as he went head over heels into the premium seating area known as the Corona Beach Club.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder flipped over the railing and eventually came to his feet with the ball in his glove, and first-base umpire Brian O'Nora made an emphatic out call, which sent the sellout crowd into a frenzy.
