Outfielder Allowed Opposing Player To Celebrate A Home Run Before Showing Him He Actually Caught The Ball (VIDEO)
This may be the greatest fake out in baseball history.
Lin Che-Hsuan of the Chinese Professional Baseball League’s Fubon Guardians made a spectacular catch recently, but he did not react as a person who just robbed a clear home run. In fact, his reaction had everybody in the stadium from the broadcast booth fooled into thinking the other team just scored.
In the bottom of the sixth with the score tied 2–2, Uni-President Lions first baseman Pan Yen-Ting hit a blast to dead center that was tracked down by Lin. He came down with his head hanging and his shoulders slumped. The home crowd went wild and Pan circled the bases triumphantly.
Major Plot Twist:
Lin caught the ball.
