And The Oscar Goes To… These High Schoolers’ Hidden Ball Trick [VIDEO]
I can't believe the runner fell for that!
We've seen the old hidden ball trick in plenty of movies. It usually involves the pitcher pretending to have the ball. As he goes about his business, the runner takes the liberty of leading off. It's then that the baseman pulls out the ball, which he's had all along, and tags the runner out.
These guys totally pulled of their own trick.
Extra points go to the infielders who literally dive to make it look like the ball has gotten past them.
