Austin Jackson helped his former team in a big way.
The once highly-touted Yankees prospect made arguably the catch of the year on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
Playing center field for the Indians, Jackson robbed Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez of a big home run in the fifth inning.
Ramirez got up with Boston trailing 7-5 in the fifth inning.
He put a charge into a ball and drove it to the deepest part of Fenway, to the right of where the field extends to 420 feet.
Jackson, sprinting to the left, perfectly timed his running jump and caught the ball in the air as it was already multiple feet over the wall.
His legs immediately hit the top of the fence, causing him to fall into the outfield– but he held on to the ball.
The play was reviewed and confirmed as an out, which may turn out to be a big one for the Yankees.
