Travis Snider Catch: Pirates OF Reaches Over Fence To Rob Mike Baxter Of Home Run (VIDEO)

For anyone who thought there was no point in watching a game between the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Pirates, two teams playing out the string in late September, we present this gravity-defying, over-the-wall grab by Travis Snider.

In a game between two teams that fell out of the MLB playoff picture in the second half of the season, the Pirates' outfielder delivered a superlative catch that may just have displaced Mike Trout's grand-theft-longball grab as the season's best.

With the Mets trailing, 2-1, in the home second, Mike Baxter got a hold of a pitch from Kevin Correia, who hung his head as if he'd just arranged for a fan to get a souvenir. But Snider retreated to the wall.. leaped.. held himself up with one arm.. and then reached high and far enough to snag the ball.
