That catch? Very nice.— #Statcast (@statcast) August 12, 2018
But that throw!? @Athletics youngster Ramón Laureano corrals the ⭐⭐⭐⭐ catch and then fires a perfect 321-foot throw to 1B for an UNBELIEVABLE double play! pic.twitter.com/Me7efjWq7v
Laureano caught this drive by Justin Upton near the wall in left center field, but with Eric Young Jr. running on the pitch there was a slight chance of doubling him off first base. Laureano needed a perfect throw to get beat Young back to first base, and delivered just that, a 321-foot missile on the fly to complete the double play.
The angle from behind the left field fence provides an awesome perspective on just how incredible this play was.
This is just the fifth major league game for the 23-year-old Laureano, all in center field. He has three outfield assists already. After Saturday night, you can see why.
