LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Monday means it’s 6 Sports Play of the Week time and this week we head to Florida and Detroit Tigers spring training.
Remember when you played Little League baseball, and someone tried the old “hidden ball” trick to try to tag out a runner on first base?
It didn’t often work when you were a kid but now and then…
Tiger first baseman Miguel Cabrera pulled off the trick in a Monday exhibition game against the Minnesota Twins.
With a runner on first Miggy takes a casual pickoff throw from the pitcher and fakes a return toss to the mound.
The runner steps off first base and BAM! Always a fun moment when big league players get caught napping.
