Watch: Bradley Jr. makes ridiculous leaping catch to rob Judge of HR

That’s one way to overrule the Judge.

Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. made his case for best catch of the year on Sunday, robbing New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge of his 31st home run with a leaping catch at the track. The spectacular grab preserved Boston's 3-0 lead and the Sox would go on to win by that same score.

According to Statcast, the ball had an exit velocity of 107.5-mph, traveled an estimated 411-feet and carried a hit probability of 94 percent.

Not on Bradley Jr.’s watch.

No glove, no love.

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton looked to have a fly ball off the bat of Los Angeles DodgersChris Taylor tracked to the wall. He leaped, missed, and came back to earth without a glove. Meanwhile, the ball ricocheted off the wall and into the outfield.

Taylor made it all the way to third base and Stanton had to track down a new glove.

Watch: Rays’ Souza Jr. makes miraculous diving catch in foul territory

Steven Souza Jr. might have been the only one at Tropicana Field who thought this Christian Vazquez foul ball was catchable. He was right.

The Tampa Bay Rays right fielder charged full tilt into foul territory, just behind the bullpen mound, and timed his dive perfectly to prevent Vazquez from seeing another pitch.

With it being only the second out of the inning, Souza Jr. immediately jumped to his feet to throw the ball back into the infield so neither runner could tag up and advance.

Price: I’m fine with ‘whatever crap I catch’ for defending teammates

David Price is willing to put himself under the bus for his fellow Boston Red Sox.

The southpaw starter infamously engaged in a verbal confrontation with NESN analyst Dennis Eckersley during the team's flight to Toronto last Thursday, and later reports suggested that the reasoning behind the argument was due to a comment made by Eckersley about another Red Sox player, and not Price himself.

Those reports were never confirmed, though Price – who stated last month he wasn’t speaking to the media anymore until after his starts – gave credence to those reports Tuesday when he addressed the Eckersley confrontation following Boston’s 11-4 win over the Texas Rangers.

“I’m standing up for my teammates,” he told Tim Britton of the Providence Journal. ” Whatever crap I catch for that, I’m fine with it.”

While it was never officially revealed who specifically Eckersley commented on that peeved Price, Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer tweeted that Price apparently took exception with Eckersley’s negative review of Eduardo Rodriguez‘s rehab pitching performance.

Interestingly, Palmer’s tweet was then retweeted by Eckersley himself, suggesting that may have indeed been the cause of the confrontation. Eckersley, however, has yet to comment publicly on the incident.

Watch: Melky steals homer from Judge with sneaky leaping catch

For a few moments, it looked like New York Yankees behemoth Aaron Judge had hit his MLB-leading 28th home run.

Even after Chicago White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera leaped in front of the left-field seats, he made it seem like the ball had actually left the park. However, as he slowly backed away from the wall, Cabrera revealed that yes, he'd indeed made the catch, sending Judge back to his chambers.

Watch: Springer lays out to make incredible diving catch

George Springer continues to add highlights to what's been a career year for the Houston Astros right fielder.

With no outs in the top of the third inning Tuesday night, Springer ranged to his right to track down a sharply hit line drive to rob Oakland Athletics center fielder Jaycob Brugman of extra bases.

Springer had a 38 percent catch probability on the play, according to Statcast.

Watch: Baez runs a mile to make incredible sliding catch

With an extreme defensive shift in play against Washington Nationals pinch hitter Adam Lind, Javier Baez was all alone on the left side of the infield.

So what.

After Lind sliced a pitch from Chicago Cubs reliever Koji Uehara, the ball veered sharply into foul territory. And yet, Baez was able to cover the ground, keep his eye on the ball and the wall, and make a spectacular catch look casual.

If you figured he was going to take it easy after stealing a hit from Bryce Harper, you figured incorrectly.

Silver: Rest of NBA needs to catch up with Warriors

People won't stop talking about the lack of parity in the National Basketball Association any time soon, especially since there's no apparent end in sight to the newly crowned NBA champion Golden State Warriors' reign of dominance.

Instead of conjuring up a way to bring Golden State down to the rest of the league's level, commissioner Adam Silver wants to figure out how the 29 other teams can rise to the challenge and create competition.

"Rather than focusing on the top of the league, we should be focusing on the rest of the league," Silver told The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore ahead of Game 4 of The Finals. "Rather than talking about how to break up or knock down a championship-caliber team, my focus should be on how we do a better job developing more great players in this league."

Silver noted that the Warriors hit the jackpot through the draft by selecting core pieces Stephen Curry (No. 7), Klay Thompson (No. 11), and Draymond Green (No. 35). The organization has also been smart with its money, creating the opportunity to sign a talent like four-time scoring champion Kevin Durant last summer.

"And yes, an incredible free agent was added to that squad," Silver said. "All the focus seems to be on, 'They're too good' as opposed to, 'What is it we should be doing to create more great teams in this league?' That's what my response is. …

"Let's create more great teams, rather than completely focus on one incredible team and whether that's seemingly unfair to the other team. I think it's the nature of competition. Ultimately, it's about raising the bar for all the teams in this league and celebrating excellence."

The Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers had a combined postseason record of 24-1 entering their third straight Finals meeting, which Golden State took Monday night in Game 5 at Oracle Arena.

Watch: Bat boy interferes with Flores on catch attempt

The circus that has followed the New York Mets all season continued Thursday.

In the top of the fourth inning, with the bases loaded and one out, Mets third baseman Wilmer Flores made a play on a foul ball, but was interfered with by a bat boy.

The incident appeared to confuse the umpires, who initially ruled the play as player interference but later rescinded the call. That led to an irritated Mets manager Terry Collins being ejected for arguing the decision.

Below is the official MLB rule for intentional and unintentional interference:

The question of intentional or unintentional interference shall be decided on the basis of the person’s action. For example: a bat boy, ball attendant, policeman, etc., who tries to avoid being touched by a thrown or batted ball but still is touched by the ball would be involved in unintentional interference. If, however, he kicks the ball or picks it up or pushes it, that is considered intentional interference, regardless of what his thought may have been.

To make matters worse, the bat boy – who was wearing Milwaukee Brewers colors – is in fact property of the Mets. Bat boys for road teams are required to wear the opposition’s jerseys.

The gaffe comes a day after Mr. Met, the club’s mascot, was recorded flipping off a fan following the team’s 7-1 loss to the Brewers.
