Juan Lagares continues career-long Willie Mays impression with insane over-the-shoulder grab

Last April, sentient highlight reel Juan Lagares covered a small country's worth of ground before making a stunning over-the-shoulder grab that could only be described as "Mays-esque." We laughed. We cried. We watched endless replays. It was a once-in-a-career catch, after all, and we could think of but one explanation for this clear defiance of physics: actual sorcery.

Flash forward to Wednesday's game against the Nationals, when Lagares ... covered a small country's worth of ground before making a stunning over-the-shoulder grab that could only be described as "Mays-esque."

At this point, the truth has finally become clear: Maybe Lagares is less "Mays-esque" than he is dedicated to a years-long Willie Mays impression. There's only one step remaining: Film a Gillette commercial.
