Hello, this is a weekly feature on NeuroTracker.net. It highlights recent plays from across professional and amateur leagues in the world. Each week, we will present one “Hero” that shows superior awareness and tracking skills that enable them to perform a great play. We will also present one “Zero” who may well have done better if they did more NeuroTracker training. NeuroTracker is used by amateurs and professionals to improve their focus and attention. It can also help with a wide array of cognitive functions.
Hero - Kevin Pillar
This might be our favourite time of the year. NCAA March Madness is wrapping up, both the NBA and the NHL are entering playoffs mode, Formula 1 is back, most Soccer leagues are in the final, most competitive stretch of the season, the MLS season just came back and finally Baseball is back!
It's also good to see that after the long offseason, Kevin Pillar, who is also known as Superman, remains right where he left off - making dangerous, flying catches in the outfield and competing strongly for the Gold Glove. In fact, he made this play with last year's Gold Glove winner Kevin Kiermaier watching from the Tampa Bay Rays dugout as Pillar's Blue Jays were visiting Tropicana Field.
The good news for Pillar is that it was one heck of a catch. The bad news, he probably got the worst of it. It's assuring to see him get up so quickly after an impact that looked dangerous.
Zero - Drake Caggiula
Speaking of dangerous impacts, Drake Caggiula getting absolutely demolished by the referee right after scoring a beautiful goal was too good to miss out. Just like Pillar, Caggiula got up pretty quickly. Unlike Pillar, who one could argue hit the wall so hard due to Tropicana Field not having an actual warning track around it like most MLB stadiums do, Caggiula doesn't really have much of an excuse.
What was the worst play you have seen recently? Did we miss one we should see?
