Washington Nationals utility man Kevin Frandsen earned some serious style points for this behind-the-back, no-look grab off the wall against the Houston Astros on Tuesday:
A Nationals teammate says he has seen Frandsen pull off the move in practice (though Frandsen denies it) but risking it in an actual game is another thing.
On Wednesday morning, he cited The Sandlot as his inspiration:

Though the runner Frandsen held at third ended up scoring later in the inning, the Nats ultimately pulled out a 4-3 victory.
