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…
- Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, is separating from Anthony Weiner after his latest sexting revelation.
- Hidden from public view, there's a parallel legal universe that empowers corporations to bend countries to their will, an investigation reveals.
- Apple will unveil the newest iPhones on September 7. Expect a new dual-camera system and NO headphone jack 📱
