The fan stretches and makes the bucket, tumbling over some seats, securing the grip. He stands up to the applause and receives praise from the Reds stand.
With Votto’s power numbers plummeting in recent years, the catch is probably particularly interesting for the young fan. The circuit was Votto’s sixth this year and his fourth at home in Cincinnati.
Maybe the Mets can call this kid.
