University of Kentucky outfielder Jaren Shelby, a Lexington native, made a catch worthy of appearing on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays list.

Shelby, who played junior college baseball at State College of Florida in Bradenton and is cousins with Major League Baseball player Josh Harrison, darted from right-center field to make a diving catch in the left-center field gap in the top of the fourth of a 5-3 loss to Texas A&M on Friday.
