While they might be similar, it's been continuously proven cricket is in fact, ridiculously superior to baseball.

Like when this guy slid into the other guy's butt.

1. Watch South Africa's captain AB De Villiers catch this ball. WHAT!

2. Cricket uses teamwork to pull off other catches... like this from India's Umesh Yadav. That's some special shit.

3. What about a ball smashed to someone at close range? Zimbabwe's Sean Williams has that covered.

5. This is how you catch a ball: New Zealand's Daniel Vettori with one hand, on the boundary ULTIMATE DGAF.

6. Try falling over and catching this ball barehanded like Bangladesh's Rubel Houssain. Baseballers couldn't do it.

7. Or a one handed blinder from South Africa's Rilee Rossouw. What a tasty classic catch.

8. What if the ball was coming in high and fast?? Don't worry David Miller will nab it like a leaping springbok.

Baseball? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA nope.

9. One of the hardest catches is from behind the head. Not if you're West Indian Jason Holder.

10. BAM! CUT SHOT STRAIGHT TO OH SHIT IT'S ALREADY CAUGHT BY NEW ZEALAND'S MARTIN GUPTILL.

This is what we like to call, "straight through him like a hot curry".

11. Australia's Aaron Finch is making this look super simple though.

12. The men behind the batsman take special catches too. Like South Africa's Quinton de Kock.

13. Then there's this ridiculous running effort from the West Indies' Sulieman Benn. Ridic.

14. Cricket is a much better sport than baseball because of this catch from India's Shikhar Dawan.

And these high-profile misses make it all the more comical.

15. Because when South Africa's Dale Steyn is taking this catch, you know that cricket is the most wonderous sport in the world.
