After making arguably the best catch of the season, Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas reminisced about his childhood, catching batting practice, and shagging flies for veteran Marcus Semien.

Semien, who believed he had a leadoff triple to kick off the top of the 9th, was robbed by Thomas, resulting in the Diamondbacks completing a 2-0 series sweep.

It was a complete full-circle moment for the 23-year-old.

Marcus Semien is currently in his 11th season of his MLB career, which means Alek Thomas was just 13 years old when the two-time All-Star was first making an impact in the major leagues.

This catch by Thomas played a significant role in the Diamondbacks’ ability to secure their fourth consecutive win.
