Has baseball's play of the year happened just one day into Spring Training? Oakland and San Francisco players seem to think so after watching A's outfielder Josh Reddick climb the fence in right field to take a homer away from the Giants' Mike Morse not once, but twice in the same game.

Don't believe them? Watch as Reddick climbs the 10-foot-high fence in right, then reaches over and beyond the fence to snag Morse's would-be home run in the second inning:

Reddick did it again in the fourth inning, again to Morse, this time grabbing the ball just at the yellow line. He then doubled down on his awesome fielding by throwing out the runner at second base for the double play.

As for Morse, there were no hard feelings on his part.

And Reddick, after robbing his Bay Area compatriot twice, got into the giving mode.
