In Sunday's win over the Marlins, Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna turned an 87-mph slider from Hector Noesi into his 33 home run of the year.

A young Braves fan in the left field seats stood with a glove on his left hand and hamburger in the right. He reached out and snagged the ball with ease in front of another fan — without losing a crumb.

“That’s the catch of the year,” the announcers dubbed it.
