Mainly because it happened in the right-field corner. Yes, you read that right. Right field.

Gallo skied a fly ball into right and Machado ranged from the second-base area, even beating his own right fielder to the ball.

Even better: He made a sweet over-the-shoulder catch — and made the whole thing look easy.

Show this to anyone who has ever said Manny Machado doesn’t hustle, because wow.

It also makes sense in the strange 2020 baseball season that the catch of the year might come in right field by a third baseman.
