Being an infielder in Major League Baseball isn't the easiest of jobs in the world, but Kansas City Royals shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. sure made it look like a walk in the park on one impressive play in his team's win over the Houston Astros on Thursday afternoon.

In case you missed it, Witt cleanly fielded a ground in the top of the fourth inning but while doing so his teammate, second baseman Nick Loftin, jumped on top of him. Witt was somehow able to shake Loftin off and stick with the play and the get the out to end the inning.

That was too good.
