If there is one lesson the Yankees learn this year, it will be this: Don't hit the ball anywhere near Jackie Bradley Jr. After robbing Aaron Judge of a home run with a leaping catch in July, Bradley was at it again on Saturday evening

In the top of the fourth inning, Tyler Austin hit a blast to deep center field. Bradley raced back, and as if he was a child trying to dunk or a superhero about to leap out of the Earth's stratosphere, took to the skies:

And in case you aren't all that impressed, just remember: Unlike home run robberies when the outfielder can use the top of the wall to give them a boost, this catch was all vertical jump. 

Just look: Even a fan thought he had a shot at bringing home a souvenir:

Yeah, that would look pretty good at a scouting combine.
