There's no denying that Yasiel Puig goes all out on defense.
In a tie game in the bottom of the ninth inning of Sunday's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Miami Marlins, Puig sacrificed his body in order to try to send the game into extras. The outfielder crashed hard into the wall while trying to catch the ball hit by the Marlins' Jeff Baker:
It was a rough play for the Dodgers. Not only did they lose the game, but Puig was shaken up on the play.
Although Puig collided violently with the wall, he was able to walk off under his own power:
