Statcast FungoMan Top 5

Here they come, with speed too impressive to appreciate with the human eye, which is why we've curated a short list of this last week's most accomplished plays, brought to you with Statcast magic. 

At the top of the list is Jorge Alfaro, quick to his feet and swift to exchange the ball, throwing out Inciarte with a 1.85-second pop time and 89.3 mph throw (only the 3rd-hardest caught stealing throw in 2018). There's more where that came from. Check out our top 5 Statcasts from this week including:

  1. Alfaro nabbing Inciarte.
  2. Acuna's fantastic grab.
  3. Moran's eye-high homer.
  4. Taylor's 98.8 mph toss.
  5. Trout stealing 2, scoring.

1. Alfaro nabs Inciarte

That pop time though.


2. Acuna's fantastic grab

 That's 78 feet in 4.4 seconds. 28.9 ft/sec. 


3. Moran's eye-high homer

You may not teach your kids to swing at those kind of pitches, but it's still impressive.


4. Taylor's 98.8-mph toss

Why is he not pitching, again? 


5. Trout steals 2, scores

When speed wins the run. 

Let us know your favorite play this week! Which play would you use to reference with your team as a teaching moment? As always, feel free to comment below with your thoughts, things you'd like to hear discussed in the FungoMan Network, where athletes and those who train them are empowered in their pursuit of excellence.
