Whenever the lightning-fast Eric Young Jr. gets on base, it’s like the New York Mets have unleashed their version of the Tasmanian Devil onto the baseball diamond.
Young Jr., the 2013 National League leader in stolen bases, is one of the fastest players in Major League Baseball. Given the opportunity, he’ll routinely showcase his base running prowess, racking up the stolen bags and infuriating infielders in the process.
The 30-year-old perfects his on-field speed and agility with ladder drills. Try adding them to your own routine a few times a week.
