That's not "the" hidden ball trick. But the decoy did not fool U2.

I think the only person fooled was R2. Maybe 3BC. It worked just like it's drawn up on the chalkboard.

It shouldn't, he's a PAC-12/WAC/MW umpire.  Great guy, too.

Also, I was the first base umpire calling "out" on today's #1 play on ESPN SportCenter's Top 10 (even though I was mostly blocked out by a pole on the camera shot).  Now that was cool.  The "fake pickoff to second base" was #3.

Was that the Delaware ss diving behind second?  Awesome play.  Couldn't believe he got him.

Absolutely amazing play. Literally threw him out while on his back.....And threw a strike.
