GFBB Note: Taking a little break from the World Baseball Classic and usual posts when this little ditty caught my eye not because he threw the mitt with the ball, but because he actually got the out at first! Spectacular play ace ~
Oregon Live – Talk about making the play.
Ducks pitcher Jeff Gold got the ball stuck his glove against Cal State Northridge on Tuesday — so he threw the ball and his glove to first. They separated in mid-air, allowing Ryon Healy to make the catch.
Awhile back, we wrote about El Duque and how he pulled this move off back in the day with the Yankees. Fast forward and you’ve got Jeff Gold pulling off a similar play. Hey, can’t knock the effort here. An out’s an out. Helluva play at first not getting distracted by the glove flying at his face.
