Watch: Juinor League World Series player makes amazing catch

Jack Regenye, an outfielder from Pennsylvania playing in the Junior League World Series, made the catch of the tournament when he dove over the fence to rob his opponents of a home run.

The Junior League World Series is an worldwide tournament for ages 12-15 and annually is held in Taylor. It's their fifth straight Junior League World Series championship. They're all 13-to-15 years old, including Jack.

However, the powerful Chinese Taipei group put up seven runs in the next inning and ultimately handed the Pennsylvania team a 12-1 mercy defeat in five innings.

Talk about the catch of the year.

Taipei's Yi Hsiang Lin crushed a pitch to deep center in the fourth inning - and it looked like there was no way Regenye was going to have a play on the ball.

He never takes his eye off the ball, even as he leaps up and over the outfield fence.

Umpires at the game nearly took the wind out of the catch when they initially reversed the call and ruled the hit a home run. The procession will lead to the KAU field complex just off Route 82, with a ceremony to honor the team scheduled for 7 p.m.
