VIDEO: Adalberto Mondesi Turns Absurdly Athletic Double Play for Royals

Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi pulled off a ridiculous double play on Wednesday.

There have been plenty of home runs around Major League Baseball on Wednesday night. But now, we're going to show you some fielding gold. During the Kansas City Royals-Texas Rangers game, Willie Calhoun clipped the baseball past pitcher Jorge Lopez towards second base. Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi slid for the ball, touched the bag, and spun around with a throw to first base, all to get Calhoun out for the double play.

Now that's a play that will make MLB Network and ESPN on Thursday morning. And Adalberto Mondesi did that all by himself.

There's something about this kid, folks.
