Sly Pickoff Move By Alex Torres – VIDEO
Check out this sly pickoff move that Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Torres attempted last Tuesday, against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Torres attempted to pickoff Jarrod Saltalamacchia by stepping off the rubber, before taking off his hat, and then make it look as though he’s wiping away sweat with his right hand. He then fires the ball to first with his left hand, while losing his glove.
The move didn’t work, as Saltalamacchia didn’t fall for it, but it certainly is worth looking at.
