It might not have been the catch Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta wanted, but it was the only one he was going to get on this play.

In the second inning of the Cubs game against the Brewers, Mark Reynolds blasted an Arrieta pitch deep into left field that looked as if it would go flying over the bleachers.

But there was one fan in the last row of the bleachers who wouldn't let that ball touch Waveland Avenue.

Check out the incredible catch an elderly man had on Reynolds' ball and his throw afterwards in the video above. If you look closely, he also pulls a sneaky switch of the balls, throwing back a much older ball and keeping the actual home run ball.
