Chico Outlaws' center fielder Blake Gailen made a great catch in tonight's game against the Tucson Toros. I was lucky enough to stay focused on him as he dived, tucked and rolled like a gymnastics tumbler to show the crowd the remarkable catch. Unlike another spectacular outfield catch, this one didn't have the strong visuals in just one shot. It is the sequence of images that really captured the effort. Sadly, newspapers can't put an animation sequence of images like the web can.
