Last night, under the lights of Target Field, the Minnesota Twins were kind enough to have the Minnesota Wild out for a softball game.
(You can see who played in the game below).
During the game, Wild center Kyle Brodziak robbed teammate Marco Scandella with a sensational diving catch in left field.
With Scandella hitting lefty, the outfield shifted toward right leaving left field completely open.
Well, Scandella of course went the opposite way.
Standing to the right of center field, the hustling Brodziak showed off some mad range by racing all the way into far left, then sprawling out to deny Scandella of the home run with ... hockey's greatest documented webgem.

The catch got ESPN's John Buccigross and former NHLer Ray "Chicken Parm" Ferraro talking:
