This one happened in Michigan a few days back. It was perpetrated by Beal City High School against Muskegon Catholic Central High School.

It’s the old “fake-a-pickoff-throw-to-second-base-while-everyone-acts-like-the-ball-went-into-the-outfield-thereby-inducing-the-runner-to-break-for-third-only-to-be-tagged-out-by-the-pitcher-who-never-really-threw-the-ball-in-the-first-place-while-listening-to-Radiohead’s-“No Surprises”-trick:
