Boddy Keppel spent a little time with three Major League teams, but he never blew our minds like he did now that he’s over in Japan.

The current Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters pitcher stabbed out his glove on a come-back liner and reeled in this spectacular behind-the-back grab.

Even crazier? This was his first official start in any league since having shoulder surgery in 2012.

Enjoy one of the catches of the year, over and over in GIF form.
