Andrelton Simmons makes an incredible play in the hole GIF

An absurd Andrelton Simmons defensive play, presented in three parts.

Part 1: He gets to a ball he has no business getting to.

Part 2: He goes from being on the seat of his pants to his knees with a rapidity that a Ninja would envy.

Part 3: He throws farther from his knees than most human beings can throw from their feet. Accurately.

Even had Simmons missed getting the baserunner by a half step, it still would have been a ridiculous play.

But he gets him, which makes it a play that defies description.

All you can really do is sit and stare in absolute awe.
