Chicago Cubs first-baseman Anthony Rizzo comes up with a dandy of a catch as he falls into the stands in a unique fashion.

What Chicago Cubs first-baseman Anthony Rizzo pulled off on Wednesday night could never be confused with the catch of the year.

Still, this catch was one of the most unique and fearless grabs in quite some time.

As his Cubs hosted the Milwaukee Brewers, Rizzo ventured into foul territory along his first-base line. It seemed routine enough where the NL All-Star would run out of room and the batter would go on to live for another pitch.

Not to be.

Rizzo not only fell into the crowd, he stood tall on the field tarp prior to going in. It is truly one of the more unusual and spectacular catches baseball has seen in a while.
