Video: Kurt Suzuki does the old 'jumping out of a pool' trick

Big League Stew

Viral videos of athletes jumping out of pools are nothing new. Jarron Gilbert, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound defensive lineman, burned up the Internet a few years ago, as did ultimate fighter B.J. Penn, who only stands 5-foot-9. Plenty of copycats have popped up on YouTube since.

To my recollection, though, we haven't seen a baseball player getting his H20 hops on — the closest was Joey Gathright(notes) leaping over a car — so here's Oakland Athletics catcher Kurt Suzuki(notes) getting all impressive during a recent session with Marinovich Training (where Penn also performed his feat).
