Respect for athleticism in another physical activity

Postby Bill Glasheen » Thu Apr 16, 2015 3:22 pm

I had to share this catch from Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar. Note the following:

  • His ability to track the ball to his left.
    .
  • His awareness of the wall to the right.
    .
  • His awareness of the need to elevate.
    .
  • His explosiveness.
    .
  • The whole body coordination and athleticism during the catch.
    .
  • The cat-like landing. (I try teaching this art. It spares the joints.)

As a former outfielder I made some very fun running, over-the-shoulder catches. I've never made one like this. I covet!

This is reminiscent of scenes from Nature.
