Photo of the Day: Josh Harrison flying through the air could be a motivational poster
Here he is making that airborne throw off a barehanded grab on a deflected grounder to second, in photo form:
"I don't want to sound cocky," Harrison said to MLB.com's Adam Berry after the game,"But I knew I was going to make the play up the middle. When it tipped off his glove, I just tried to change my direction as quick as possible. That's where a lot of offseason agility, change-of-direction stuff came into play. Just trusting my reaction. As soon as I saw it tip off his glove, I knew my only shot was doing what I did.
"Off the bat, I knew I had it. When it tipped off his glove, it just gave me a little detour, change of plans, but I still got it."
The next time you think to yourself, "Hmm, I'm not sure I can do this," just think of this photo of Harrison, defying gravity as he flies through the air. You can do it.
