Chelsey Desmond dove to the right, stabbed at a lazily hit ball and came up with the web gem of the week. 

The Big Lead spotted the following Instagram video, which features Ian Desmond‘s wife laying out to make a play during a charity game. 

Proper baseball protocol mandates we doff our cap in a show of respect. Please know that we are clapping from here and are also thoroughly enthralled as evidenced by this GIF.

As the report states, the play came during the Wounded Warriors charity softball game, which took place on Sunday right before the Washington Nationals handed the Phillies an 11-2 loss. 

This should just add to the good feelings taking over the Nationals clubhouse at the moment. Mired in a lackluster season, Washington is trying desperately to end on a high note. 

With a win early Tuesday, the team has won nine of its last 10. Unfortunately, it is still nine games back of the Braves but has closed the gap on the wild card to 4.5 games. 

That’s all missing the point, because this was about Desmond’s wife, who decided she should illustrate proper form on making an amazing grab for her husband. 

The 27-year-old certainly saw the grab and gave his wife some credit on Twitter

The Desmonds don’t mess around when it comes to fielding. Some say their household is where doubles and triples go to die. 

Now that concludes our coverage of MLB wives flashing some serious leather on the field.
