In case you were wondering, Andrelton Simmons can hit, field, dribble, bounce, kick and juggle a baseball effectively. 

David Brown of Big League Stew spots this MLB Fan Cave video that features a few Atlanta Braves players as they attempt to juggle a baseball on a bat and then smack it into the stands. 

It’s nice to know that even professional athletes can look extremely awkward sometimes. 

Luis Ayala gets a few bounces in before losing the ball completely; Chris Johnson is just as successful—essentially he isn’t. 

That’s when Paul Janish steps up to bounce the ball a few times on his bat before knocking one off his chest. As David Brown notes, all of this sort of reminds us of the Tiger Woods commercial when he did something similar.If only there were a baseball player who could go from start to finish with as much control and swagger as Woods. 

Thankfully, Simmons has this bouncy-ball trick thingy on lockdown

This is just the latest sign that the force is strong in this one. The 23-year-old is coming off a 3-for-5 performance to help the Braves get a win over the Rockies on Monday night. 

In the last three games, Simmons is 7-for-13 with two doubles and a triple. Oh, and 102 games in, he is getting stronger, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Perhaps we can expect far more random Jedi tricks to amaze baseball fans in the future. Hell, instead of walking up to the plate like a normal player, Simmons should send a souvenir into the crowd with this exact same trick. 

The Braves are in first place by nine games and are on a four-game winning streak. Sure, that’s impressive, but I simply need to see more of Simmons juggling a baseball.
