There was quite a catch made — for a softball player and a heads-up cameraman — across the state on Tuesday.
Berwick sophomore center fielder Katie Starr made an incredible home run-robbing catch, crashing into the fence, just in front of Atlantic Broadband Channel 10 cameraman Doug Farley.
An on-it Farley caught the must-see play perfectly, from the bat of Crestwood senior Haley Naperkowski, to Starr’s glove.
The highlight made ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays.
Starr hit a solo home run in Berwick’s 5-3 victory.
