This guy would love patrolling center in Citi Field

In case you missed it, there was a tremendous catch made in the College World Series opening-round game June 20 between Florida and UCLA by Florida center fielder Matt Den Dekker.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because he was the Mets' fifth-round selection in the 2010 draft, taken 152nd overall.

A three-time member of the All-SEC defensive team, Den Dekker is referred to in the video as the best center fielder in Florida history. He hit .358 in his senior year. The catch has shades of Willie Mays and Jim Edmonds.

Think he'd enjoy roaming the wide-open spaces of the Citi Field outfield?

There's a better link to the video here.

Here's another one where he steals a home run.
