baseball clips

Last few days spent watching some Blue Jays play some baseball. Good team, it's going to be a fun season.

Saturday, ninth inning, Jays versus White Sox. The play of the year so far in baseball, and I don't see how it can be topped. Tadahito Iguchi (Chicago's 2nd baseman) makes an incredible throw to first to get Bengie Molina out. I thought the Jays were mounting a ninth inning rally when Iguchi fell down. Thing was, as he was falling, he threw to first. Watch it here and see for yourself. (clicking will open up a media player).

For all you thinking fans of the game: Last night in L.A., Omar Vizquel was the middle man for a rare, groundball 4-6-5 double play. Watch it here. Vizquel doesn't even look at first but turns and fires to third. I don't know what he could have possibly seen up to this point to make him think he could get the runner at third, but somehow he did.

Finally, for those of you who appreciate the effort. Game 6 of the 1986 world series as commented by Vin Scully. For visuals, RBI baseball. Truly, a majestic piece of art.
