Javy Baez Shows Kids How to El Mago, and then Showed Us All in the Game (VIDEOS)

Chicago Cubs

I am loving the video the Cubs put out with Javy Baez showing some kids how he does the amazing, magical things that he does:

And, of course, after showing the kiddos how to do it (er, well, after the video came out … ), El Mago had to make sure to show us all how he does these things in the game:

With a good runner coming down the line, you should just about never be able to make that play. But Baez was perfect, his throw was strong despite his awkward angle, and then bonus shout to Anthony Rizzo for an incredible stretch.

Oh, and for good measure, Javy Baez notched his 99th RBI last night, giving him about a month to get to the century mark. If he gets it via a solo home run, that’ll be RBI 100 and homer 30 on the year. That’d be pretty cool. How about today?
