Baltimore Orioles phenom Manny Machado has a lot of baseball people hot and bothered with his amazing skill set. He’s well on his way to setting the single-season record for doubles and has an insanely bright future ahead of him.
Yesterday, he proved he could do unprecedented things on defense, too. Check out his throw after bobbling a chopper down the line against the New York Yankees. He’s practically in the third-base dugout.
The play was reminiscent of the most iconic moment in Orioles franchise history: Brooks Robinson’s incredible web gem in the 1970 World Series.
History has a way of repeating itself.
