Javier Baez hit an inside-the-park two-run homer during Monday's Cubs-Giants game. According to Statcast, he raced around the diamond at a speedy 16.11 seconds. He also juuuust beat a 307-foot cannon from right fielder Carlos Moncrief -- the seventh-longest throw of the season. 

Yet, our favorite part of the play was Baez's slide into home plate. It was a slip-n-slide dive because it's summer and so why not.

Look at that, the chalk and dirt even looks like water flying up on both sides:

That was fun. Now, let's go do it all over again.
