Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons showed once again why he is a three-time Gold Glove Award winner, making a terrific diving catch on a Victor Martinez pop-up on Wednesday night.

According to MLB.com’s David Adler, Simmons had to run 85 feet into left field to make the catch. He ran at a speed of 29.4 feet per second, which as Adler notes, is near the threshold of 30+ feet per second that features elite runners. The Statcast leaderboard features only 20 runners who average 29.4 ft/sec or better.
