Rangers' Leonys Martin turns an incredible double play, starting with robbing a home run (Video)

Texas Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin made an incredible play in Monday night’s game against the Oakland Athletics. A’s first baseman Daric Barton hit a ball deep fly ball towards the outfield wall and it looked like it had a chance to get over and be a home run.

Martin climbed the wall and got the catch and out, he then made a heads up play to rifle the ball back to Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder, as Josh Reddick tried to get back to the bag. Reddick was originally called safe by the umpires, but upon review they called him out.

Check the video of the play out below:
