Pat Burrell and Chase Utley celebrate Super Bowl on Slip 'N Slide

His playing career has ended, but that doesn't mean slugger Pat Burrell can no longer accomplish impressive feats — even while holding a beverage.

While being filmed by former Philadelphia Phillies teammate Chase Utley on a beach somewhere Sunday afternoon, Burrell successfully slid down a Slip 'N Slide without spilling the protein shake he was holding in one hand.

Watch Pat the Bat execute a recreational baseball slide:

Classic. Textbook. Nobody got hurt — especially the drink. If there were a Super Bowl of Slip 'N Slides, Burrell would be a safe bet in the Beverage Division. Burrell and Utley were teammates on the Phillies from 2003-2008, winning the World Series in '08. Seven years later, Burrell's still got it athletically. Good job framing the scene by Utley. No need for more takes.

Burrell, 38, hasn't played since 2011, having moved on to the role of scout and special assistant with the San Francisco Giants. He's got two more World Series rings as an executive after batting .253/.361/.472 with 292 home runs over 12 major league seasons. Only seven stolen bases in 10 attempts in that span, though. Surprising, given his sliding acumen.
