University of Houston center fielder Drew Bianco stood out last week when he stole a home run against the University of California.
But that play was overtaken by another steal, this time with Bianco jumping over the fence.
He had just entered the game against the University of the Incarnate Word when a deep fly ball was hit to left center field. Bianco mounted his horse and began to follow, getting closer to the wall with each step.

But when he hit the warning track, Bianco wasn’t slowing down one bit. Calmly, he reached up and grabbed the ball destined for the Cougars’ bullpen, and his momentum carried him over the wall, somersaulting through the air on his way to the ground.
As the announcers and all the spectators waited for the signal that he was okay, Bianco stood up and showed everyone that the ball stayed in his glove to keep the score 8-3 in favor of Houston.

All of these catches require pristine timing and execution, let alone being able to hold when you hit the ground.
