Andrelton Simmons is a baseball trick phenom

Do you remember that old Tiger Woods commercial years ago when he juggled a golf ball on his club and then smashed the hell out of it? Well, during the Braves' recent series in New York against the Mets, some members of the team attempted the trick with a baseball and a bat. Luis Ayala, Chris Johnson, and Paul Janish all failed to varying degrees.

Then slick-fielding shortstop Andrelton Simmons took a turn, and well…he executed it perfectly, juggling the ball on his bat, on his feet, and then popping it back into the air and hitting a line drive. The 23-year old Simmons has seen his bat vastly improve this year, and he's looking like a franchise guy at short for the Braves…with or without his amazing ball tricks.
