Andrelton Simmons Makes Over-The-Shoulder Basket Catch Look Easy

Andrelton Simmons is a wizard.

Andrelton Simmons covers so much ground and makes this catch look so easy, that it might seem unimpressive. Don't be silly, though, it's impressive as all get out. We would love to see MLB Advanced Media's new tracking system on a play like this because it looks like Simmons and center fielder Emilio Bonifacio cover roughly the same amount of ground, but a.) Simmons is doing it while running with his head looking directly above him and, b.) he gets there before Bonifacio.

The broadcast called him a wizard and apologized for the comparison to the OG wizard, Ozzie Smith, but it's OK, Andrelton Simmons is a damned wizard. He almost doubled off Luis Sardinas at first, too, but the throw was just wide.
