Leave it to the guy who’s handled pitchers as well as anyone ever has to show he knows a thing or two about throwing off a mound.

Yadier Molina, the free agent catcher and future Hall of Famer, pitched in a professional game recently. A Puerto Rican winter league playoff game, no less.

Molina entered the game with his team trailing 19-7 in the ninth inning. According to WAPA Deportes, a sports channel in Puerto Rico, the St. Louis Cardinals’ longtime catcher allowed a solo home run while facing four batters, the last of whom he struck out.

Yadi shared video of the strikeout of third baseman Emmanuel Rivera, a Kansas City Royals prospect, on his Instagram account.

Molina, who collected his 2,000th career hit last season, has played for the Cardinals for all of his 17 major league seasons.
