VIDEO: Phillies Prospect Jiwan James Makes Amazing/Hard To Explain Catch

Jiwan James, a Phillies outfield prospect who is currently playing his trade in Reading, made one of the more impressive, yet also hard to figure out catches you'll ever see.

He climbs the wall to rob the hitter of what is certainly a home run, but appears to miss the ball and fall to the ground on his back. Yet, amazingly, he raises his non-glove hand and he's got it! I've watched the video 10 straight times and I'm still not sure I've figured out exactly how he came out with this catch. However, the Youtube commenters certainly aren't lacking in explanations...

Either way, it is a pretty great highlight and worth checking out. Click after the jump for the video.
