Last night’s game between AL East rivals Tampa Bay and Boston featured one of the prettiest, smoothest, most mind-boggling double plays you’ll see this year.
Watch as Yunel Escobar ranges to his left and nonchalantly fields a ground ball and in one fluid motion transfers the ball perfectly into the palm of Ben Zobrist’s bare hand and then Zobrist in turn makes an equally impressive play to complete the sequence.
For the record, a behind the back glove toss and bare-handed turn are examples of everything your Little League, Legion, high school, and college coaches taught you NOT to do.
But Escobar and Zobrist are all like…
- A teenager was taken into custody Wednesday after he shot two students and one teacher at an elementary school in South Carolina.
- After top lawmakers accused Russia of meddling with the election, US officials have insisted votes on Election Day will be secure.
- Congress has voted to override President Obama's veto of a bill that'd allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia.
