San Diego Ballgirl Makes Incredible Catch, Goes Viral

Check out that vertical!
You may have already seen this video on your Facebook or Twitter feed. Matt Kemp of the San Diego Padres hits a screaming line drive down the foul line. The ball girl makes a leaping stab and grabs it right out of midair. The crowd applauds. She nonchalantly gives the ball to a kid and goes back to her duties. The broadcasters go crazy. The catch is named Play of the Game.

After you've seen the video, if she looks like she's been there before, it's because she has. It should come as no surprise that the young lady in the middle of the fame - however momentary - is a former Division 1 third baseman, having played for Loyola Marymount in the late 2000s and early 2010s.


  1. Wow. That last shot of her in the close up she looks a little like Jennifer Aniston.

  2. She definitely can field better than Marcus Semien.
