The sight of a baseball hurling toward your body provokes fear in most people. But Johnny Sewald of the Arizona State baseball team is not most people.
The outfielder caught a baseball with, like, his elbow or something while up to bat against the Washington State Cougars on Saturday. Calm, cool and collected, Sewald then surprised the crowd by dropping the ball into his hand and tossing it back to Washington State pitcher Layne Bruner, who acted like it was no big deal as well.
The announcers, who are soon to become Internet legends, did not act so chill. Here is a rough transcript of their hilarious reaction, but you should really just listen yourself:
Ooh. Did he catch it? Yaaa-HAAAAAH, wooooo! HAHA. CHECK THIS OUT. WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED? HE CAUGHT IT. AND THEN HE THREW IT BACK AT HIM. THIS COULD BE ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN ON A BASEBALL FIELD. DO IT, JOHNNY. HAHAHAHA. [Clap. Clap. Clap.] AH, SON.
Sports, man. Sports.
