Trevor Bauer drops in on Indians TV crew with expert-level videobomb

Don't let anybody tell you it's easy to pull off a great videobomb. It takes some skill to get it just right.

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer (who has been known to wear boxing gloves in the dugout during games in the past) has that certain videobomb "it factor." In between Games 1 and 2 of Cleveland's doubleheader against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on Monday, he utilized it to perfection.

Kudos to SportsTime Ohio's Jensen Lewis and Al Pawlowski for mostly keeping their composure while Bauer calmly lowers himself into the middle of the frame and waves to the camera:

Bauer's solo effort calls to mind the collaborative work of a few Astros back during Spring Training, when they came together as a band of ninjas in an attempt to distract Scott Feldman during a dugout chat:

If you're trying to hone your skills as far as videobombs are concerned, you'd be well-suited to take lessons from these examples of how to get it done properly.
