  For whatever reason, I've always been fascinated with counting the number of steps an outfielder takes when making a long, running catch. It started with the Tommy Agee catches in the '69 World Series which I watched repeatedly on home movies rented from the local library when I was a kid.
  While this study is not exactly the same, it's a very cool look done by ESPN stats folks on hang time, distance covered and all that goes into great catches and near misses.
