Derek Jeter — Greatest Cutoff/Relay Play

After just teaching the sure double tandem relay system, I was reminded of this play by Derek Jeter. So, winning run on 1st base, sure double down the right field line. Most MLB teams have the 2B go out as the lead guy and the 1B go out as the tandem guy on balls down the line. This is how the Yankees do it. The RF overthows BOTH guys! Jeter sees it happening and sprints out of nowhere to back up the bad throw and flip the ball to Posada at home to nail Jeremy Giambi, whose failure to slide probably costs the A’s a trip to the World Series.

That was not part of our lesson. That is being an athlete and “in the moment”.
