It’s a day of great catches in Major League Baseball. After Billy Hamilton made this indescribable catch for the Reds, the White Sox’s Adam Engel tried to one-up him with this awesome robbed home run.

Any robbed home run is impressive, but a lot of them feature the glove getting just above the wall. But Engel got UP. His elbow is above the wall!

But was it better than this?

As we noted, Hamilton made the catch more difficult than it had to be, but that contributed to the awesomeness. Meanwhile, Engel had to be amazingly efficient to get to the ball.

Which is better? You decide.
