      1:32 Someone please explain. I thought no-one was out on that play.

        @UG Visions Cool, thanks bud.

        dave474c the fielder let the ball bounce which means the runners had to run, if he would’ve caught it then the runners stay on their bag, there was a runner on 1st and 2nd and he acted like he was gonna catch it but he didn’t, the runners came back to their bags because they thought he was going to catch it and when he let it drop they had to advance and it became a force play so it was an easy out

      Good and smart aren't the same. Now if there was just 1,000,000 IQ editing so we could see any of the plays in context.

        Baseball is the only sport where the highly trained professional athlete makes the proper play and all of a sudden it is a "smart" play

          Dropping an infield fly doesn't need 1,000,000 IQ. So glad for the infield fly rule. Doing that was rediculous.

                Isn't there an "infield fly rule" that would have called the batters out instead of causing double plays? Or is this a new rule?

                  Chuck Klosterman an infield fly is only in effect when there is less than 2 outs with a runner on first and second (and third sometimes). The rule is not in effect when only a runner on first as it’s seen as a 1 for 1 situation. Assuming the batter hustles then there is only 1 out either way. But batters don’t run causing this to be a double play ball

                A few exceptional plays in there. Most were just what you're SUPPOSED to do in baseball. Normal plays given the opportunity. Nothing impressive. Nice try though.

                  Definitely need to show the full clip of Cain directing Yelich back to second and running back to first himself so both runners were safe. The glimpse in this video doesn't do it any justice. I was at the game when it happened and I was stunned. Such a heads up play from a great player.

                        Why does everyone think it's so smart for an outfielder to know when there is a runner on third.

                          Im probably gonna feel really stupid but why drop a ball in foul territory

                            So the runner can't tag - dead ball on a foul, but a catch can be tagged on no matter where the ball was.

                            There was a runner on 3rd base each time and if they would have caught the ball, the runner would be able to run home.

                            Also, must be a man on first and second or first second and third, less than two outs and can't be on a bunt.

                            It's only an infield fly rule when the umpires call it. A lot of these were so quick the umps didn't have time to react.

                          I used to fake catch a lot and catch people off guard all the time while playing second base in high school and they used to try and get the refs to stop me from doing it all the time which was annoying as fuck. If I’m not making any fake tag or getting directly in front of players interrupting them then they couldn’t stop me from doing it. It was the best shit ever. The coaches on the other teams would get so pissed at me and cuss me out cuz their players were getting caught out all the time. Funny shit, man

                                                There are a couple of "double play" balls in this video with one out with runners at first and second base and the ball is thrown to 3rd instead of 1st for the last out. Am I missing something here? Seems like a risky play rather than a smart play

                                                    Would of thought he can catch and get the throw home well in time though?

                                                    The runner at 3rd base can tag up and run home even if he catches it in foul territory.

                                                      1:33 not a brilliant play-- just a moronic *major league* umpire who is apparently unfamiliar with the infield fly rule
                                                      When my dad umpired he was a stickler about that rule-- and rightfully so. Only a complete idiot would think that this play is clean.

                                                        Dude, you’re implying *intent* in a roundabout way, not the obvious intent. I don’t want to make a philosophy seminar here, but the intent was not to make the play easier.

                                                        @ShoviCal "catchable with ordinary effort" The announcer knew while *the ball was in the air* what the fielder was doing. It was obvious to everyone. Therefore, it was an easy catch.

                                                        idk, the fly rule is usually only applied after a certain height and whether ball is catchable not necessarily each evaluated individually

                                                          Can someone explain to me, at 0:35 why the pitcher throw the ball with his glove? When he can just turn the ball. I don't really understand the rules

                                                            The ball got stuck in his glove. It happens to him more than twice in this video. He needs a new glove lol

                                                          3:14 isn't the fielder obstructing the runner's basepath right there? It's smart to deke the tag for sure, but he's for sure just blocking him from running period.
