Veteran pitcher Jon Lester’s inability to throw a ball to bases is well documented. His new bounce pass throw has also been well documented.
Brewers star Ryan Braun decided to test Lester’s bounce pass. He took off from second base while Lester was still holding the ball on the mound.
Lester turned and bounced the ball to third baseman Kris Bryant, who tagged Braun out. All Braun could do was smile after his unsuccessful attempt.
It’s worth a shot, if for nothing else to see Lester’s bounce pass attempt. It worked this time but it will not every time.
