It's Spring Training, one of the best times of the year. Baseball is back, and so is ... shooting trick shots at the local swimming pool?

Ethan Hankins, a right-handed pitcher in the Indians' organization, demonstrated via Twitter an example of how he and some of his teammates spend their time off the field -- by shooting, and making, some crazy shots with a basketball from multiple stories above a pool.

Hey, spring is for baseball. But we don't mind a little hoops action to go along with it, especially when it's as tremendous as the type of shots Hankins and company are draining. Hankins tagged teammate Richard Palacios in the tweet -- apparently the pair put its own twist on the name "Splash Brothers."

Let's hope the insanely popular trick shot artists Dude Perfect are watching and invite the players to recreate their magic in an upcoming episode on YouTube.
