TFW: Your Friends are Laughing, But You Come Up with the Ball Anyway

Baseball Is Fun

For most of his career, Elvis Andrus has been an above average defensive shortstop. In 2016, however, his defensive numbers have been on their way down. With that said, he’s still capable of making difficult plays, he just might not do it with as much style or grace as he’s used to.

Take, for example, the catch he made on this infield popup while tripping over the mound:

It wasn’t pretty, and his teammates were laughing, but he made the play anyway, and that’s all that matters. Check it out again as a gif, and loop it over and over. It’s pretty fun to rewatch.

Hey, it’s better than tripping over the mound and coming up empty handed, right?
