Seemingly day in and day out, Javier Báez does something on the baseball field that catches one's attention.
From his electric baserunning to his unbelievable tags, Báez is one of, if not the most, entertaining players in baseball. His flashiness on the field hasn't gone unnoticed by the next generation of baseball players, either.
Little League polled the Little League World Series players on their favorite MLB players. Sunday, MLB announced that Báez was ranked No. 1, ahead of Angels outfielder Mike Trout (2) and Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (3).
Baez's flair carried over to the Little League Classic on Sunday. The Cubs shortstop made an impressive play on a groundball hit up the middle, also making friends with the Little League players in attendance.
