#HECH4GG (And 10 GIFs To Prove It)


Saturday night in Denver, Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria made yet another, jaw-dropping play; this time saving the game for the #FightinFish.


Not surprisingly, Marlins broadcasters, Tommy Hutton and Rich Waltz lost it. And we were right there with them:


Acquired in the 2012 blockbuster trade with the Toronto Blue Jays, Adeiny spent his first season with the Marlins quietly developing into a defensive wiz.

2014 has been a breakout season for Adeiny, who continues to make stellar defensive plays, all while raising his batting average from .227 to .275.

With such a breakout officially underway, it’s time to give credit when it’s due and begin viewing Adeiny as a Gold Glove-caliber shortstop, or #HECH4GG, for short.

Entering the 2014, we posted 16 Reasons Adeiny Hechavarria Will Win A Gold Glove. Here’s 9 more (and one from Saturday) proving that time is now:


#2 – It didn’t take long for Adeiny to record his first #HechOfAPlay. This amazing leaping grab contributed to a dominant Opening Night win for your Marlins:


Amazing leaping grabs call for hat tips from Jose.


#3 – Nicknamed “El Perro”, hashtag #uuufff has become a trademark of Adeiny’s:

It's all about the #uuufff

It’s all about the #uuufff


#4 – He’s got some serious range… if you’re into that kind of thing:

"El Perro" strikes again!

“El Perro” strikes again!


#5 – Air Adeiny? Oh, no he didn’t…

Just your friendly neighborhood shortstop. Spiderman-esque

Just your friendly neighborhood shortstop. Spiderman-esque


#6 – Late in the game, he seems to only get better:

#7 – Wowza:

"Oh, you know, just taking away a base hit or two."

“Oh, you know, just taking away a base hit or two.”


#8 – The line, “You’ll be seeing that one again on SportsCenter Top 10,” has become all too common…

Say it with us, #uuufff

Say it with us, #uuufff


#9 – #HechOfAPlay after #HechOfAPlay:

No base hit for you!

No base hit for you!


#10 – Got’em!

Who doesn't love a diving stop?

Who doesn’t love a diving stop?


So let’s help him out together,  #MarlinFamily — the next time you see Adeiny make a spectacular play (it won’t take long) use hashtag #Hech4GG

Everything from skydiving…

To snorkeling…

Or even… a First Pitch!?

Definitely! When Marlins season ticket holder, Roly, used Rewards Plus to throw out the Honorary First Pitch at Marlins Park, he attached his trusty Go Pro Camera on his cap to capture an unforgettable angle of his moment! Take a look:


Seeing how far the mound is from home plate, maybe we can understand that infamous 50 Cent toss… maybe.

Marlins Explore the Roberto Clemente Museum in Pittsburgh

Yesterday, your Miami Marlins arrived in Pittsburgh a day early for a three-game series vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Field.



With the day wide open, Henderson Alvarez, Adeiny Hechavarria, Marcell Ozuna, Donovan Solano and Jordany Valdespin spent their day paying homage to one of the greatest international players and humanitarians in baseball history, Roberto Clemente.

Located in downtown Pittsburgh, the museum is dedicated entirely to “The Great One” and features memorabilia, awards, equipment and photographs, showcasing Clemente’s 18-year career as a Pittsburgh Pirate.


 Marcell examines the bat of the Hall of Fame legend.


Donovan gets his hands on the Clemente bat, too.

 In his career, Clemente was a National League MVP, a 12-time All-Star,  a 12-time Gold Glove winner and a member of the 3,000 hit club.

All in all, a successful afternoon learning about a person that broke barriers in baseball and created a path for future Latin and Spanish-speaking players to follow.
