Must see: Aaron Hicks with a Willie Mays-like catch

Author:

Aaron Hicks is on a bit of a roll for the Minnesota Twins.

Called up from Triple-A Rochester late last week after missing 19 games with a strained forearm, Hicks has homered in back-to-back games and set a career high by driving in a run in four straight games.

While it's great to see Hicks swinging a hot bat, it's no surprise that he's playing an outstanding center field – and on Monday his skills were on full display as he channeled his inner Willie Mays with an incredible over-the-shoulder catch.

Mays made his incredible catch in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series.

This isn't the first time Hicks has wowed the crowd with his glove.
