Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end OJ Howard produced an incredible one-handed catch in the crowd to snag a foul ball during the Houston-Tampa MLB playoff game on Tuesday night.
Howard was sat in the stands enjoying a little baseball action at the Houston vs. Tampa playoff game when a foul ball came flying his way. The NFL star then did what came naturally, and plucked it out of the air with a fantastic one-handed catch.
The catch impressed everyone in the stands, who gave Howard a huge ovation, and earned the respect of the commentators in the booth, who initially weren’t aware of Howard’s sporting credentials.
An eagle-eyed producer did recognize the Tampa Bay star, however, and relayed the information to the commentators, who duly acknowledged the NFL athlete’s remarkable one-handed catch.
His job may be to block pass rushers and claim short-range catches across the middle, but it’s unlikely Howard will claim a better, or more spectacular, catch all season.
