Royals Speedster Jumps a Car

KC outfielder Joey Gathright shows off his hops:

Awesome, he looks kinda short too!

Thats fucking incredible.

I love to see something so difficult made to look so easy.

i jumped over a hummer last week. just kidding, that was tight, but i’d be pissed if he messed up jumping over my car and kicked a dent in it or something.

Impressive, but I don’t know how smart it is to be filming something like that. That’s got to be against his contract in some way

I think I’ll be able to do that if I can just add a few- maybe 14- more inches to my vertical.

Does anyone know what his measured vertical actually is?

thats incredible…too bad he can’t hit very well…j/k GO ROYALS…

I was thinking the exact same thing

guys got crazy ups

Gathright is an incredible athlete. The problem with baseball is that even physical specimens can be humbled by the sport. I guess that’s what makes baseball so great; even a guy built like David Eckstein can play at the sport’s highest level and thrive.

that was pretty impressive…he can run pretty darn fast too…but the hitting is a problem lol

John Wendling has some nice hops too.

That’s sick. Him and Adrian Wilson should battle.
