Masato Akamatsu (born September 6, 1982, in Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City) is a Nippon Professional Baseball player. He is currently with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. In August 2010, Masato made sports headlines by denying batter Shuichi Murata a home run with what sportswriters dubbed the "Spider-Man Catch," rapidly scaling the outfield fence before snaring the ball in midleap. He won the Gold Glove that same year.
