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 bestâ€”his Jadeite. For the full rules, check out the introduction.
Round 1: The Cannon vs. A League of His Own
Editor’s Pitch: No matter how many times I watch Simmons do the impossible, I still am amazed by it. He pounces on this ball then has to slide to stop his momentum from going toward left field. All of that, and he still has time to stand, turn, and throw the runner out by a step. The whole thing is incredible, but he makes it look effortless. I feel like I’ve written that before.
A League of His Own
Editor’s Pitch: He’s not fair. He’s really just not fair.
