When Javier Baez reaches base, opposing pitchers and infielders should do themselves a favor and never look away.
The Chicago Cubs infielder proved that again on Wednesday with a steal of home.
That swim move is just something to behold. Even when it looks like he should be out (by a good margin), he finds a way to beat the tag.
What’s even more impressive is that this was not Baez’s first steal of home this season. He previously stole home against the New York Mets on a similar play (which you can see here). That one broke a tie, while this one tied the game. So, he’s going in the big spots.
You just can’t take any chances with this guy out there.
