Do Not Try to Run on Rick Ankiel

A few years ago, as a pitcher, Rick Ankiel couldn't hit a target that was just 60'-6" away. Now, he's making perfect throws to get runners at third...from the wall in center field. I don't get it (steroids, right? I mean, it has to be).



I've seen harder throws (Vlad and Ichiro come to mind), but I can't remember a throw as accurate as those TWO made by Ankiel (can you?). Oh, and he also hit a home run in that game, just for good measure.

Thanks to Deadspin and Bugs & Cranks.
