The Chicago Cubs got the 5-3 victory to collect the three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday.
Baez spoke to Cubs announcers J.D. and Boog after the game to discuss how he makes so many special plays on the basepaths.
"I don't know to be honest. I think I just improvise," Baez said. "I just saw him get off the bag. I was going to go headfirst to the bag, but I didn't think I was going to beat it anyways. I just improvised."
Baez added the following quote in the postgame interview with the media.
“I’m pretty good at tagging and not letting people tag me.”
Here is the video of the unique play:
