Play of the Day: Adeiny Hechavarria, Dee Gordon complete a ridiculous double play

15 Comments

Marlins infielders Adeiny Hechavarria and Dee Gordon completed a double play during Saturday’s game against the Dodgers that left the Marlins’ broadcast booth exclaiming, “Wow!”

With runners on first and second with one out in the fourth inning of a 3-2 game, Yasmany Grandal hit a grounder up the middle off of starter Tom Koehler. Hechavarria was playing close to the second base bag due to an infield shift, so he had to range to his right to corral the grounder. He made a backhanded toss to Gordon on second base, who then did a Derek Jeter-esque jump-throw to first baseman Jeff Baker to complete the inning-ending double play.

When you leave the broadcast team speechless but for the word “wow!”, you’ve done your job well.
