Watch this indy leaguer scale the outfield wall and make a ridiculous catch to rob a home run

Many home run robberies are a bit questionable -- was it really going to crest the fence or was it going to bounce off the top of the wall? There was no doubt about this one. In the bottom of the third during an independent Atlantic League game between the New Britain Bees and the Lancaster Barnstormers, KC Hobson smashed a deep drive to center field. 

Unfortunately for Hobson and his amazing baseball name, the Bees' Michael Crouse was there. He scaled the wall like he was doing parkour and reached far beyond the wall to bring the ball back: 

Of course, it shouldn't be a surprise that Crouse pulled off the Lambeau Leap-esque grab. After all, his father was former Green Bay Packer Ray Crouse.
