The hidden-ball trick has a whole new twist.
One young fan was certainly on the ball when he fielded a ball in the stands and had another one at the ready during Saturday night's Rangers-Blue Jays game at Arlington, Texas.
The young man has plenty of game. Not only does he make the play with his glove, he immediately delivers another ball he had at the ready to impress a female fan behind him.
We may have a budding Derek Jeter on our hands. Jeter's fielding has been the stuff of legend for the past two decades. And he often rewarded female overnight guests with signed memorabilia, including autographed baseballs.
Smooth operator, indeed.
