Javy Baez continues to do all the little things to make himself one of the most fun baseball players to watch.
Playing for Puerto Rico in the WBC on Monday night, Baez pulled off a stolen base by using an incredible swim move after diving into third:

Puerto Rico was unable to drive him in after that, which is partly why the game went to extra innings where they won 4-3. Between this and his awesome tag earlier in the tournament, Baez has made some great plays.
