WATCH: Braves Andrelton Simmons throws out Lucas Duda deep from his knees

  • David Whitlock

When Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons says “I could make that play sitting on my a–.”  He means it.  Watch as he makes a diving stop deep to his right in the hold, then, in the interest of time, just goes ahead and throws a rope from his knees (via MLB.com)

Braves fans are used to seeing fireworks, at least this time it was on the field and did not deface any National symbols.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
