Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig has taken MLB by storm this summer. In a sport that lacks a true “poster child,” Puig might just develop into that. And Puig could become that definitive superstar sooner rather than later.   The L.A. Dodgers rookie sensation made a 280 foot throw (according to MLB Network) that was just insanely perfect from deep in right field of Nationals Park. Also it was Bryce Harper who Puig attempted to throw out at third base. (Jayson Werth his the deep). So with Yasiel Puig and Bryce Harper this is a rather high profile play for young budding MLB stars. Unfortunately umpire Eric Cooper blew the call. The throw from Puig got to former White Sox infielder Juan Uribe in time; clearly. saw it differently Yet Harper was ruled safe.   Take another look at Yasiel Puig making this incredible throw and judge for yourself. It’s good to be Yasiel Puig this week.  The 8th Annual ESPY Escape Gifting Lounge took place at the JW Marriott on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 and Wednesday, July 17th, 2013, where Puig and other celebrities and athletes mingled together such as: Joe Flacco, Victor Cruz, Ray Allen, Michael Phelps, Lolo Jones, Jordyn Wieber and Jacoby Jones. Puig took home a lot of swag which included: Belkin Wireless Gift Package, Outterbox Smartphone Case Gift Set, Zirh Grooming Gift Sets, Westen Lake Las Vegas Weekend Getaway Package, 5 focus gum Year Supply, and Tikkun Holistic Spa VIP Spa Day Pass.
