2011 Favorites: 2. The Sean Coyle second base tumble shot

I don’t really know how something can be simultaneously easy and hard, but that’s what second base shots are. They’re easy in the sense that you know exactly where some action is going to take place, but you never know exactly when or how they’re going to occur. And you have about a second and a half to react and shoot it. That keeps it challenging.

This year Greenville Drive second baseman Sean Coyle made things interesting. He was always willing to do whatever it took to make the out, even if that meant twisting and turning and flopping on his rear. This was one time he went all out for the tag.
