This Has To Be The Most Nonchalant Bat Catch In Baseball History
If you watch baseball often, you’ve seen it hundreds of times…
… a batter takes a hard swing at a pitch, misses the ball and loses grip of his bat, sending it flying into the stands.
Sometimes, the bat will fly into the dugout, sending coaches and players scattering.
Earlier this week, during a spring training game between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, Adeiny Hechavarria lost control of his bat.
The bat flew into the Mets’ dugout, and of course one player ran for his life.
But Luis Guillorme, a 22-year-old shortstop, had a different idea. Known for his defensive prowess on the diamond, the Venezolano showed his hands are just as reliable in the dugout — without the help of a glove.
Guillorme, a minor league prospect looking to impress his coaches, made it pretty clear he’s cool under pressure.
Then he just casually tossed the bat back on the field like he was used to it.
Guillorme told MLB.com: “I just literally saw the bat coming at me and caught it. Didn’t think much of it.”
Well done, Mr. Guillorme, well done.Credit: UFC
