Video: Giancarlo Stanton crashes into outfield wall for impressive catch

Tuesday May 26th, 2015

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made an acrobatic catch in Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, crashing into the rightfield wall. 

In the bottom of the second inning, Stanton tracked a long line drive off the bat of Josh Harrison and leapt high in the air just before the ball hit off the wall. Stanton slammed into the metal grate covering the out-of-town scoreboard but hung on to the ball. The catch ended the inning and prevented a run from scoring. 

According to MLB's batted ball data, the ball left the bat at 92 mph and traveled 339 feet. 

Stanton batted third in the top of the following inning and hit a solo home run to rightfield.
