An impressive catch was made in the stands during Game 4 of the ALDS between the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. In the bottom of the eighth inning of the Rays’ 4-1 win, Tampa Bay’s Austin Meadows ripped a foul ball just over the bullpen down the right field line, and a fan made a barehanded snag.

Well, it turns out that fan is Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard.

The Buccaneers hope the former Alabama star can make more catches like this on the football field. Howard only has 11 receptions for 141 yards, with no touchdowns so far this season, after many evaluators thought he had a breakout season coming.
