Catching a throw-out from a fielder is easy - catching a line drive down the first base line is hard. But it looks easy from the stands - and artistic. Rule number one for a baseball player - be in the right place at the right time.
I'm not sure what is better - being an athlete or being an artist/painter. Either way it beats having a real job.
