Jean Segura made an amazing play to catch Jhonny Peralta off base
In the top of the 4th inning of the Brewers' game against the Cardinals on Tuesday, Peter Bourjos hit a groundball up the middle, deftly snagged by a diving Jean Segura.
Assuming that Segura wouldn't be agile enough to reach to the ball AND aware enough to throw to third, Jhonny Peralta drifted toward home. But Peralta was wrong. Very, very wrong.
Not that this wasn't only a graceful defensive play from Segura. No, special attention must also be paid to Bourjos' gorgeous striped stirrup socks. It's that attention to aesthetic beauty that, though only briefly glimpsed in the highlight, elevate this video from merely very good to sublime.
