Kevin Frandsen is your typical, run-of-the-mill, replacement level player (career fWAR of 0.4). He is not expected to be spectacular. He is not expected to be above-average. Hell, even average production from Frandsen would be a bonus. So when he does something that you have to watch multiple times, it is something worth noting. Like, the play in the video below, for instance.
I can't even...I mean...wow.
And it turns out that he apparently had been practicing this play. As if he somehow knew that this exact situation was going to arise and he just needed to be ready for it. At least, that's what Jerry Blevins is saying on Twitter.
I saw @KevinFrandsen practice this play in BP "WSH@HOU: Frandsen's behind-the-back grab saves run http://t.co/3CN1jAMmrw via @mlb"

It's on Twitter so it must be true.
Let us remove our caps and pay homage to this ridiculous play. Kevin Frandsen, well played.
