ESPN's 'Sports Science' breaks down Jose Iglesias' ridiculous throw vs. Yankees

ESPN's "Sports Science" show listened.

After Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias robbed New York Yankees' Brett Gardner of an infield hit with a spectacular play earlier this week, pitcher David Price gushed about it.

He also challenged "Sports Science" to break it down.

"Ridiculous. They don't understand how hard that is. Even if that ball is hit right at you, it's still a tough out with Gardner running," Price said. "To go into the six hole and throw the ball the way he did, that's just insane. I want to know how hard that is — I really hope 'Sports Science' does that. People don't get it. They don't understand the degree of difficulty on that play. It's cold, windy, wet — it's a joke."

They did do something on it.
