WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Flashing the leather, Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez drew gasps from the impressed little leaguers in the stands at BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field. Baez showed off his defense aptitude early on in Sunday's MLB Little League Classic.
In the bottom of the first, Baez raced to his left and fielded a hard-hit grounder before making a backhanded flip to Cubs second baseman Tony Kemp for the force play. Baez pulled off another web gem in the second inning, as well, when he snagged a liner that was rocketed off the bat.
