    10 Superhuman Diving Catches You've Probably Never Seen Before

    Someone should check these guys — and girls — for capes.

    Over the weekend Angels left fielder J.B. Shuck made one of the best catches of the 2013 MLB season, leaping over the left field wall at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim (real name) to rob a home run from Jose Bautista. The Angels went on to win the game 7-5, but lasting memory will be of Shuck leaping out of the field of play and into the stands while maintaining control of the ball.

    Flying INTO the stands to rob a home run is rarer than your average — yet still incredibly exciting — leaping grab. It's a play not often seen in MLB highlight packages. So in Shuck's honor, here are ten other examples, many from obscure games, of other players doing their best Superman impression.
