Last season, Jon Lester did something unique and kind of funny, when he tossed his entire mitt to Anthony Rizzo after a come backer got stuck in the webbing.
We wrote about it here (you can also watch it there), and the highlight was included in several hype/pump-up video packages the Chicago Cubs created over the past year, mostly because of how odd and surprising it was. Also, it was awesome.
Well, as it turns out, that play may have been odd, but it was not too unique, because Jon Lester just did it again in today’s game against the Pirates.
Check it out:
It may have happened twice, but it’s been funny (and a quietly smart play) both times. Lester will just do anything not to throw the ball to first base, won’t he? /sarcasm
