It’s simple science; what goes up must come down. But if you’re Kevin Pillar in the outfield, your goal is to never let a baseball come down … only for it to cradle in the pocket of your baseball glove.
Kevin Pillar is at it again with his latest “Kevin Pillar vs Drones” Sport Chek video. The first time around, he took target practice by throwing balls from the outfield to hit some flying drones. This time around, Pillar is doing what he does best – making a diving catch in the outfield.
Watch as Kevin Pillar catches a baseball dropped from a height of approximately 400 feet above the ground by a drone. Surprise, surprise … like most objects that are dropped into his office, Pillar catches it.
To me, the most difficult part of the play wasn’t the catch itself, but it was tracking the ball from an obscene height; hundreds of feet above the ground.
In the overhead angle, you can also see how much distance Pillar covered in such a short span of time. In a matter of mere seconds, he intercepted the ball before it hit the ground. Kudos to Kevin for somehow managing to get a glove on it.
