Joel Embiid, outfielder? 'The Process' does work at Home Run Derby

Joel Embiid, outfielder? 'The Process' does work at Home Run Derby

That's a long drive to left field and … there's Joel Embiid.

Yep, the Sixers' big man was spotted at the 2017 Home Run Derby in Miami on Monday night, camped in prime ball-catching territory.

So good luck to the youngsters sitting near him, because Embiid wasn't just there to take in the event — he was there to catch some dingers.

The 7-footer delivered on collecting souvenirs.

Embiid looked like he was there with Philly rapper Meek Mill.

And if you're worried about Embiid hurting his hand, "The Process" said don't worry, Sixers fans.

J.P. Crawford hits rare inside-the-park grand slam capped with amazing slide

J.P. Crawford hits rare inside-the-park grand slam capped with amazing slide

After getting pretty beat up by minor league baseball experts, J.P. Crawford continues his recent hot streak.

Crawford pulled off a play on Wednesday night that you certainly don't see every day. He hit a rare inside-the-park GRAND SLAM.

But he should have been out. The solid throw from the outfield to home plate clearly had him beat but the catcher was pretty nonchalant with his tag and Crawford managed a pretty good slide underneath.

Safe!

It was Crawford's ninth home run of the season.

Lehigh Valley went on to beat the Gwinnett Braves 8-2 and Crawford finished the night 1-3 with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored.

Just like a closer, Ken Giles has odd way to get ready before a game

Just like a closer, Ken Giles has odd way to get ready before a game

They always say to be a closer, you've got to be a bit whacky.

Ken Giles seems to have that down.

The former Phillie always seemed to have the intensity and intimidation.

I mean, look at this ...

Well, add the peculiarity to his focus and arm.

Prior to Wednesday's game against his old club, Giles was getting the mind right with some important meditation in the Astros' bullpen, which you can watch in the video above.

As you can see, this guy is clearly meant for the ninth inning.

And, hey, when your team is 67-33 and 17½ games up in first place, you're allowed to be this loose.
