What Statcast Sees When You Rob a Homer

Baseball Is Fun

During the 2015 season, Tampa Bay Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier was a freak. He may have had the best defensive season of which we’re aware.

One of his many spectacular robberies was taking away this would-be homer from Manny Machado:

Even if you’ve seen that before, it was worth watching again, wasn’t it?

That’s just awesome to look at, and think about every person involved.

I especially enjoy the Machado yup-yup-yup-wulp-nope route.
