Only top-notch athleticism (and the splits!) made this play by Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman possible
Baseball players are athletes -- this isn't up for debate, but sometimes it's good to remind you of that.
One of the latest examples of the undeniable athleticism of ballplayers came in Friday night's Mets-Braves game at SunTrust Park, courtesy of shortstop
OK, calling it a "grounder" is a bit misleading. Because if you saw a shortstop running that deep into the hole between second and third base, would you think it'd end in a putout? That's what happened, thanks to some full-on extension from Freeman at first base.
Range, athleticism and the splits! This play had it all.
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
