Andrew Benintendi's home-run-robbing catch could not have had a more perfect backdrop

During the Red Sox's 6-2 win in Tampa last night, Boston rookie Andrew Benintendi made this spectacular grab to rob the Rays' Steven Souza Jr. of an eighth-inning home run (that would've made a 3-0 game 3-2):

The catch earned the No. 1 ranking on the "Top Plays" segment of Monday's late-night SportsCenter.

Nearly as impressive as the play itself was the perfectly placed sign in the background of this photo:

Not only did Benintendi "raise up" to catch the ball, but he also appears to have intercepted the would-be homer from its crash course towards the center of that star/mini explosion logo.
