I’ll forgive you if you’re not intimately familiar with Indians third baseman Giovanny Urshela, because before Jose Ramirez started spending more time at second base, there wasn’t much room for anyone else at the hot corner.
But last night, Urshela showed us what he can do, ending the game with one of the all-time best jump throws – from WAY in foul territory – that I’ve ever seen.

Getting to that ball at all was impressive enough, but to make that sort of jump-turn and fire a ball – on the fly and in time – to first base was nothing short of amazing.
Take another look:
My word. What a play.
