“As a young kid, I would catch as many dragonflies as I could and rub them on the bottom of my feet, and the rest is history”

The inspiration for Nike's new line of apparel:

Jacoby Ellsbury, the first major leaguer of Navajo descent, is proud of his heritage and his speed. The New York outfielder was just 8 years old when his mom told him about the dragonfly, a Native American legend that his grandfather had passed down to her. As Ellsbury recalls it: "If you catch a dragonfly without killing it and rub it on the bottom of your feet, it will make you faster."
