THIS IS AWESOME: Cubs Pitching Prospect Busts Out the Soccer Move to Get the Runner

Chicago Cubs

Hey, they don’t practice pitcher fielding drills for nothing, right? And, uh, also, some soccer drills, apparently.

Tonight, Cubs pitching prospect Javier Assad hustled to field a comebacker, but, in his effort, fumbled the ball. That’s when his instinct took over, and holy crap:

That is just so freaking awesome. I hope this play makes the rounds tonight and tomorrow, because it is both well done, and also just a lot of fun.
