Didi Gregorius turned a double play throwing sideways while balancing on one leg -- because of course he did

There are things that Didi Gregorius can do. The Yankees shortstop can hit dingers. He gives strangers free subway rides. He's an emoji king. He plays soccer. Oh, and he also smiles a lot. 
Playing one of the more demanding defensive positions on the diamond doesn't affect him, either. In fact, he's even great at that, as he proved in the fourth inning of the Yankees' 9-6 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night in the Bronx. Sandy Leon hit a chopper to second baseman Gleyber Torres, who fired to Gregorius at the second-base bag. 
Didi then essentially threw sidearm to first baseman Neil Walker in order to avoid the slide of Rafael Devers -- and this maneuver brought Gregorius off his feet ... well, at least off one of his feet: 

That balance. That accuracy. That athleticism. 
Watch your back, David Ross. Should Didi want to try his hand at competitive televised dancing, he'd probably dominate that as well.
