When you get John Lackey to smile at you in the middle of a game, you know you’ve done something well.
Or funny. Or both. But mostly funny.
On a sinking liner to left, Kyle Schwarber came in hard and made a really nice catch. And then his body kept moving (via @MLB):

Ah. You gotta love the head point and laughs from Schwarber, and the reciprocal chuckles from Lackey, who undoubtedly appreciated the catch.
Schwarber might not win any Gold Gloves out there, but he does create his fair share of highlights. And there is fun to be had:
