One day after former Arkansas Razorback and current Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi hit his first hone run in the major leagues, he followed it up with one of the best defensive plays in the outfield in the big leagues this season.
Benintendi robbed a home run from Steven Souza Jr. in the bottom of the eighth inning on Monday by leaping and grabbing the ball as it flew over the wall in the left field corner. He extended about half his body over the wall before coming back with the ball.
ANDREW BENINTENDI IS THE GREATEST BASEBALL PLAYER ALIVE!! https://t.co/EhP6RbHJmk

Obviously Red Sox fans are pretty excited about the kid.
