Brewers' Matt Garza tags first base with his back

Double plays have been turned for as long as baseball has been played -- whether it's barehanded, behind-the-back or just throwing the ball into the stands. But the best way, as Matt Garza demonstrated during Monday's Brewers-Angels game, is to do so while lying down.

"That was an interesting play," Garza told MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. "My feet just came out from under me as I'm trying to stop for the throw. My feet slipped, I'm on the ground laying on the bag, and it's either the glove or my face. I'm like, 'The glove!'

Also, some excellent preparation for what our future holds, Matt. Don't you agree?

Good.
