Video: Jeremy Hermida extends entire arm over wall to rob a home run

Columbus Clippers outfielder Jeremy Hermida made a remarkable catch to rob a home run Sunday against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

The fantastic play came in the bottom of the sixth inning when a Pawtucket batter lifted a long fly ball toward the right field fence. Watch as Hermida slowly backtracks, extends his arm well over the wall, and then proceeds to haul in the ball in jaw-dropping fashion.

His momentum immediately sends him spiraling down onto the warning track, but after a brief moment of catching his breath, his teammates in the bullpen rush to the fence to greet him with cheers and applause.
