Video: The best catch you may ever see

There are amazing catches and then there's this catch from Lower Columbia College's Derrick Salberg. With his team holding a 4-2 lead with two outs and one on in the ninth inning of the first round of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges tournament, Salberg did this on a shot by Everett's Keone Kela:

"By far the best catch I've ever made," Salberg told Rick McCorkle of the Daily News in Longview, Wash.

You think?

Forget the level of play, that's as good of a catch under the circumstances as you will ever see at any level.

Pitcher Brandon Boyle put it more succinctly -- "it definitely saved my butt."

Also major props to Daily News photographer Bill Wagner for his fantastic photos of the catch.

Jeff Passan at Yahoo has a fantastic story about Salberg, his coach and the 4-foot wall.
