Watch Manny Machado and Brooks Robinson make eerily similar plays 43 years apart

Third-base cannons of different generations.

Orioles fans who witnessed Manny Machado's dazzling play to throw out Luis Cruz on Sunday were immediately reminded of Brooks Robinson's legendary put-out of Lee May from the 1970 World Series. The good @GDixon410 jumped on that similarity and dipped into the MLB archives to produce a very, very neat GIF:

They aren't identical plays-- among other differences, Machado ended up bare-handing the grab while Robinson one-hopped his throw-- but definitely similar, and pleasantly so.
