Video: Alexi Amarista makes incredibly entertaining catch

Well, San Diego Padres center fielder Alexi Amarista made one entertaining catch Saturday.

The play came in the bottom of the sixth when Amarisata took a less-than-stellar route to flag down a flyball. The dazed and confused youngster got all the way to the warning track before realizing he had severly misjudged the baseball. At that point, he quickly repositions himself and makes a deseperate dive to make an outrageous catch.

It can't really be labeled as a great catch, because it's not, but it can't be labeled as a bad one, either. So, we will tab it as an exciting and entertaining for good measure.

It should be noted that Amarista had to contend with the not-so-friendly dome of Tropicana Field, which has wreaked havoc on many outfielders before him.
