Yasiel Puig Flies Like A Superhero But That Doesn't Mean He Won't Steal A Hit From Your Team (GIF)

The crowd at Citi Field can be a tough one, even for players on the home team. But those New York fans still know amazin' when they see it.

Many Mets fans gave Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig a standing ovation on Thursday night after an incredible diving catch deprived the home team of an extra-base hit. With the Mets and Dodgers tied, 1-1, in the second inning, shortstop Wilmer Flores drove a ball to deep right-center field. The 23-year-old Cuban dynamo made a long run toward the ball and then dove to make the spectacular snag.
