Miguel Cabrera pulls off hidden-ball trick in Tigers win over Twins

TIGERS 3, TWINS 0

Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera slyly pulled off the hidden-ball trick, trapping Ehire Adrianza in the third inning. Tyson Ross made a pickoff throw that sent Adrianza diving into the bag, and Cabrera pretended to toss the ball back to the mound. But he kept it and when Adrianza stood up and stepped off the base to shake away the dust, Cabrera tagged him.

The Twins' first base coach, by the way, was Toby Gardenhire -- son of Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire. Toby Gardenhire is a minor league manager in Minnesota's system. Ross pitched four innings and struck out five. JaCoby Jones homered and Grayson Greiner had two hits.

From The Big Lead

Ah, yes. The timeless art of the hidden ball trick. Cabrera clearly studied under the great Dave Bergman, who famously fooled Alan Wiggins.

The challenge now is for the Tigers to top this highlight. I’ll give them even money to do so by year’s end. (1 image)

Oh, I don't know about that. If the runner on base isn't paying attention, I'd say it's a good play.

Is a fake punt or fake field goal not playing football?

Trick plays have been a part of baseball (and all sports for that matter) since the early days.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

That's not the same thing. The defending team supposed to be paying attention at that point, and it's not like the offense is hiding the ball before play begins with the wide receiver hiding it under his jersey.

Seems to me you're both right and both wrong (context is everything.)

The common threads in both the case of football and baseball are...masked intent , assumption and thinking within the outer edge of usual paradigm of "rules."

What does bother me is Instant Replay that "win" a challenge on technicality by virtue of microscopic, nanosecond margins. To me, this violates the entire spirit and sportsmanship of the game.

I agree with that to a certain extent but I think the real benefit of it is to keep the refs/umpires on top of their game so they don't become lazy/biased.

I hear ya. The new (looow) standard of showboat/lazy/incompetent refs and umps in the name of "vibrancy" makes Instant Replay necessary.

It's just that on baseball plays like being off a base by a 1/8" seems to take away from the spirit of the game.
