Imagine being able to throw a baseball 99 mph. Now imagine being able to catch a thin flying object while also throwing a baseball 99 mph. And, no, you cannot use gorilla glue on your hand.

As Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brusdar Graterol hurls his 99 MPH pitch toward home plate, his gold chain breaks right off. Have no fear though, Graterol catches the chain with the exact same hand that threw the baseball, and he does it all without flinching.

This either took some extreme luck on the follow-through or a level of hand-eye coordination that I cannot even fathom as a normal human being.

Of course, he plays for the Dodgers too. It's not enough that Los Angeles has elite prospects at almost every position and enough money to sign any free agent they want on top of that, the Dodgers even have guys that can accomplish unexplainable feats of nature. At least save the viral videos for us normal people Dodgers Nation!
