NCAA Baseball: UC-Irvine Pulls Off Hidden Ball Trick On LSU Thanks To Blown Call
The Ol' Hidden Ball Trick Even Fools Umpires
I can hardly remember the last time I saw a hidden ball trick, let alone one that actually worked.
In yesterday's NCAA Baseball Super Regionals, UC-Irvine pulled out all the tricks to stop LSU's 23-game winning streak. In the bottom of the sixth with the Tigers rallying, the Anteaters called for the ol' hidden ball trick.
Technically, it didn't work, but the second base umpire was impressed and/or tricked, himself.
As you can plainly see, second baseman Casey Stevenson tagged the Tigers' DJ LeMahieu after he'd already touched the base. Dejection and ejections ensued.
