Atlanta Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr. launched a grand slam in Monday’s game with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The real highlight, though, came from a Braves fan.

Acuna’s slam was a low line drive that went into the seats with some decent speed. Despite that, a fan made a leaping barehanded grab to catch the ball cleanly.

It’s not often that a grand slam gets overshadowed, but that’s precisely what happened here.



That takes real focus, reflexes, and of course, athleticism. There are some Major League outfielders that we’re not sure would make that play.
