Full swing slow roller twards 2nd baseman just gets past the pitcher trying to field it (this one looks like a Norris Hopper bunt).

The 2nd baseman runs in and swipes the ball, with his glove toward the 1B. The ball is not caught and then flipped with the glove, the player just makes a swipe with his glove and the ball goes toward the 1B.

The 1B then catches it in his bare hand....for the bang-bang out.

Crazy.

Meanwhile, Texas, with Hamilton 0-4, leads the Sox 8-4.

Play can be seen on MLB Gameday right now - no need to suffer through SportsCenter.

It wasn't just any flip -- he backhanded it. I've never seen a player do that before. Wow.

ive tried that before....it didn't work out like that...at all, i flicked it off the runner as he was running down the line, and i was impressed with myself that i came that close to getting it to the base.

One of the cool things about baseball.....thousands of games, thousands of plays, yet there's always a chance you'll see something for the first time. Definitely hadn't seen that one before :)
