Madison Mallards left fielder Alex Bacon got both cleats on the wall to climb up and hang on just long enough to rob Willmar Stingers' infielder Troy Kuhn of a home run.

Bacon likely made the catch of the summer in the Northwoods League (a Midwest-based league composed of top college players), but the Mallards went on to lose 7-6.

Editor's note: The local news video and a previous version of this article mistakenly identified Alex Bacon as "Troy Bacon." We regret the error.
