Texas Rangers rookie center fielder DJ Peters did two amazing things on one play on Saturday night at Fenway Park to complete one of the best double plays you’ll ever see.
With the Rangers leading the Boston Red Sox 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Boston’s Rafael Devers cranked a flyball to deep center field. Peters went back to the wall and made a leaping catch (it would’ve been a homer-robbing grab in some ballparks), and then fired a rocket from the warning track to first base before the Red Sox’s Kiké Hernández returned to the bag, making for an insane double play.

It would’ve been a fantastic play on the catch alone, and then Peters took it to a completely different level with the throw.
What a play.
