VIDEO: Hicks keeps robbing homers

About two weeks ago we brought you a video of Minnesota Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks making a sensational catch to rub Adam Dunn of a homerun. Today we’ve got another Hicks video as he made an amazing catch last night on a would be Carlos Gomez homer. This one came on the road and happened with the Twins up 2-0 against the Milwaukee Brewers.

I’m torn on which catch is the better catch. Hicks had to make a straight line run to center to rob Dunn but against the Brewers wow. It looked like he had to cover a lot more ground as this ball was crushed to left center and then he had a perfectly timed leap to make the catch.

What impressed me was after the catch Gomez, also a center fielder, gave a tip of the helmet to Hicks. He patrols that area daily so he knows how great of a catch that was even if it came at his expense.
