LOS ANGELES (CBS13) — You might as well tune out the rest of the Major League Baseball season after watching this throw by Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.
With the A’s game against the Los Angeles Angels tied 1-1 and a runner on first, Mike Trout hit a ball to left field that Cespedes bobbled, then hesitated to grab.
As Howie Kendrick rounded third, Cespedes uncorked what could easily be the play of the year.
A laser throw to home plate left Kendrick out and the game still tied, despite Angels Manager Mike Scioscia’s protests.
The Angels would get the last laugh though, winning in the bottom of the 14th inning on a walkoff home run.
Cespedes played for the A’s Triple-A affiliate the Sacramento River Cats last season, and also won the MLB Home Run Derby.
