Let's watch Tyler Saladino sink an insane jump shot from the center-field seats

Tyler Saladino has accomplished a lot in his athletic career. He starred at Oral Roberts University, was selected by the White Sox in the seventh round of the MLB Draft back in 2010 and has spent the last two seasons playing stellar defense all over the infield.
