Joey Gathright Will Jump Over Pitchers, Cars With Ease
Joey Gathright may not be known as an exceptional hitter, but the Royals outfielder is one thing above all else: a tremendous athlete.
After the Royals starting center fielder David DeJesus went down with an injury, Gathright stepped into his place and knocked down three hits (amazing by itself), one of which came in quite spectacular fashion. Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda stood in his way trying to retrieve the baseball, so Joey just went ahead and jumped over him.
The last time Gathright displayed his leaping ability ... jumping over a car several years ago in a random parking lot. Yes, Joey, you are the man.
