Minor League Team Pulls Off Hidden Ball Trick – VIDEO
Watch below, as a minor league baseball team pulls off the hidden ball trick.
The play took place during a match-up between the Carolina Mudcats, an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, and the Buies Creek Astros, an affiliate of he Houston Astros, during a Class A game.
The Astros had just completed a double-steal against Carolina, with Kyle Tucker sliding safely into third. That's when Mudcats third baseman Lucas Erceg mimicked throwing the ball back to the pitcher but held on and then waited very patiently for Tucker to lead off.
It took about 40 seconds to accomplish, but the Mudcats got the out.
