This wasn’t one of those “oh my God, tell everyone you know about it throws,” but it was an incredibly smooth and satisfying throw with good camera work, so it’s the sort of play you could watch over and over again.

Here’s Jackie Bradley, Jr. throwing Carlos Beltran out at home in last night’s Red Sox win over the Yankees:

His quote after the game was pretty good too. Bradley musing about Beltran’s motivation on going home:

“Maybe he thought I was going to concede the run with the lead we had. Nope.”

The throw was Bradley’s ninth assist this season, leading all outfielders in that category.
