If you weren’t in Baseballtown last night (and who would blame you with the city’s 63% high school graduation and 41% poverty rates), you missed one of the most spectacular catches of the year from none other than Reading Phillies CF The RELL King James. He was the top play on ESPN last night, which should be a regular thing for him in a few years.

Now there’s been some (a lot) of debate about whether he caught the ball, and after spending some time going through the video frame by frame, it is inconclusive. Either way, it’s still an incredibly athletic play. Let’s hope he displays some of those theatrics on Vance Worley garden gnome night.

And if you missed it, here’s an interview that SOP favorite PhoulBallz did with the King last year.
