In case you were wondering, Andrelton Simmons can hit, field, dribble, bounce, kick and juggle a baseball effectively.
It's nice to know that even professional athletes can look extremely awkward sometimes.
Luis Ayala gets a few bounces in before losing the ball completely; Chris Johnson is just as successful—essentially he isn't.
That's when Paul Janish steps up to bounce the ball a few times on his bat before knocking one off his chest. As Brown notes, all of this sort of reminds us of the Tiger Woods commercial when he did something similar.
Thankfully, Simmons has this bouncy-ball trick thingy on lockdown.
This is just the latest sign that the force is strong in this one. The 23-year-old is coming off a 3-for-5 performance to help the Braves get a win over the Rockies on Monday night.
In the last three games, Simmons is 7-for-13 with two doubles and a triple. Oh, and 102 games in, he is getting stronger, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.
Andrelton Simmons said after the game last night that he feels he's getting stronger physically. Showed it there, hitting that RBI laser.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 30, 2013
Perhaps we can expect far more random Jedi tricks to amaze baseball fans in the future. Hell, instead of walking up to the plate like a normal player, Simmons should send a souvenir into the crowd with this exact same trick.
The Braves are in first place by nine games and are on a four-game winning streak. Sure, that's impressive, but I simply need to see more of Simmons juggling a baseball.
