Video: Cameron Maybin leaps high over the wall to rob homer

Saturday brought us yet another candidate for catch of the year as San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin hauled in a beauty.
The play occurred in the very first inning of the Padres home game against the San Francisco Giants. With two outs, Giants outfielder Xavier Nady crushes a drive high and deep toward the center-field wall. That's when Maybin rises up and robs Nady of a homer with a spectacular catch, tearing the padding on the wall with his cleats in the process.
San Diego would rally from three runs down to upend San Francisco, 7-3. 
How does Maybin's catch compare to the one Pirates outfielder Travis Snider made on Thursday?
