A Fine Fake-Out From Fernando


From Fernando Perez, a Tampa Bay Rays farmhand ranked as their 17th best prospect, a former Ivy Leaguer who graduated from Columbia with a creative writing degree and who has been nicknamed “Mr. Excitement” comes this awesome fake-out during a Durham Bulls game. This is by far one of the best bits of fakery I’ve ever seen on a baseball diamond and I’d say his nickname appears to be well-earned.

    That’s one fine fake-out. I wish people tried this more often, then again, it’s even cooler because it never happens… because most people are called out.

    whatevs. this is awesome.

    Great fake out. Also props to the Umpire for not calling him out and waiting for the play to develop.
