Hand-eye-foot coordination.

Long Beach State outfielder Richard Prigatano turned a routine fly ball into one of the most unusual catches you'll see all year. Prigatano was camped out under the lazy fly, but appeared to be having trouble with the sun. The ball then deflected off his glove, but with a combination of skill and luck, he was able to kick the ball back into the air and into his glove for the out.

An unusual catch, no doubt. But how does it stack up against Brock Holt and A.J. Pierzynski's display of teamwork last night?
