Video of catch of the season -- on the first day of spring training!

By Mike Harrington

It's freezing outside and it's freezing inside the First Niagara Center as I get set for tonight's Sabres-Bruins game. I'm also five days away from heading to Florida to cover the Sabres' trip there -- but while they're in Dallas on Monday I'll be at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa watching the Yankees and Nationals.

So anything to get some baseball out of my system on a freezing cold day, I present this to you:

The Catch of the Year competition is over. On the first day of play in the Cactus League.

Oakland right fielder Josh Reddick did it with this incredible Spiderman act on the right field wall against Mike Morse of the Giants today in Scottsdale. You cannot be serious about this one. An Instagram user (JLaff21) got a copy of the video iff MLB Network because the game was not televised.

The A's have now released a view that includes the crowd reaction and the San Francisco Chronicle has posted it.

Check them out below:
