EL MAGO! Javy Baez Getting Magic, Even in Spring Training (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

At first, I want to say something like, if you’re gonna be magic during the regular season, you have to practice it in Spring Training.

But when it comes to Javy Baez, the El Mago is entirely natural, and you couldn’t practice it even if you wanted. The mystical stuff just happens, regardless of the month:

Javy just can’t help himself, and yes, it’s always fun to watch the magic slide. It’ll be interesting to see how and when players do their best to counteract that slide. You almost just have to leave the glove at the base for the final moment.

Or I suppose if you were a Javy Baez-caliber tagger, you could just slap late … of course, that might not work either.
