Video: Twins prospect Byron Buxton makes catch worthy of it’s own poetry

byron buxton twins amazing catch

Byron Buxton was selected in the second round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins, and this catch is pretty much the reason why. Of course, a line of .350/.444/.578 to go along with 26 stolen bases in 58 games doesn’t hurt either.

How great has Buxton looked as a member of the Single-A Cedar Rapids (Ia.) Kernels? Not only is he making sensational grabs in the outfield, but fans are literally writing poetry for him:

Let’s be clear; concise; first views and reviews. Let’s stay another night; watching you play under the lights; spelunking/sparkling; it’s important to be clear and concise; present day wondermenting

Hand over the bottom hand; power hunting; contacting; bat-to-ball relationshipping; hips explosive firing; it’s not cowardly to be afraid; we can’t all be saved

Remember when they called you celestial?; I might have mentioned it; non-casual; I’m not being casual; offensive stroke was sensual; captivating and captaining; exaggerated emotions from the geometric environmental

Call it some way that we can get to know you; call it when you can; it’s important to call it when you can; take a legendary stride; athletic parasailing

Well, we’re not quite sure about very much of this “athletic parasailing,” but this catch is absolutely phenomenal.
