Fearless Mexican catcher dives headfirst into dugout chasing foul ball
You’re probably not used to getting baseball highlights in January, but buckle up — this is a wild one.
In Mexican Winter League action on Monday night, catcher Sergio Burruel nearly made one of the best game-ending catches that you’ll ever see. With two outs in the ninth, Burruel went hard after a foul popup and put his body on the line by diving headfirst over the dugout steps in an attempt to make a Superman catch.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t quite make the grab but, luckily, he wasn’t too much worse for the wear after the bold attempt. That’s a competitor right there.
