10. Over the Shoulder Grab
In early June, the Reds were hosting the St. Louis Cardinals. With one out in the top of the 4th, Phillips dazzled the fans with an amazing catch. Off the bat, you could tell it was a softly hit flare that was in no mans land. No fear though, Phillips sprinted back and made the catch. He was so nonchalant about it too; just another day at the park for BP.
