Just like riding a bike.

Having retired from baseball in 2010 before taking on a managerial career, Detroit Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus, a former big-league catcher, showed all of Comerica Park on Sunday that he still has it by helping starter Justin Verlander warm up between innings.

Ausmus decided to take matters into his own hands to begin the sixth inning because starting backstop James McCann couldn’t get his gear on in time.

But with how easy it looked for him, this might not even be Ausmus’ last warm-up stint behind the plate.
