Nestor Cortes Just Made a Ridiculous Play on a Comebacker, and You’re Gonna Want to See It

Baseball Is Fun

In addition to being a wizard when pitching on the mound, shifting and contorting his body into delightful but deceptive movements, Nestor Cortes is also a wizard when fielding on the mound.

That same unique body control allowed him to shift his body into position to somehow make this snag, and then squirm around to kinda throw from his backside:

That is just a ridiculous play all around, especially when you consider it was a bases-loaded situation. Cortes is a wizard and an artist.

The play kept the Yankees up 2-1 in the game against the Guardians, as New York looks to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five ALDS.
