Andrelton Simmons standing on a baseball field with a glove on his hand is a web gem waiting to happen, and this winter Braves Journal is going to determine which of his gems is the best of his best—his Jadeite. For the full rules, check out the introduction.
Round 1: Backup Extraordinaire vs. Superman
Editor’s Pitch: Simmons will never give up on a play, even if someone else is supposed to be making it. Considering the defensively solid Pena was at third, Simmons could have easily been caught on his heels on this play. That is not the Simmons Way, however, so when the ball got past Pena, Simmons was not only ready for it, he was able to get to it in enough time to make the out. Of course he did.
Editor’s Pitch: Take a screen shot at 0:28 of this clip, throw a cape on the man, and you’ll discover the true identity of Superman. Clark Kent has nothing on Andrelton.
