Oakland A’s outfielder Ramon Laureano launches a 321-foot throw to turn a double play against the Angels.
It’s impressive enough to double up a runner with a 321-foot throw, but to do it by throwing out the runner at first base? A’s center fielder Ramon Laureano did just that in Saturday night’s 7-0 victory against the Angels.
In the third inning, Laureano tracked down a drive from Justin Upton at the warning track in the left-center field gap, running 76 feet in 4.4 seconds.
After slamming on the brakes, Laureano turned and fired a strike on the fly to first baseman Mark Canha to double up Eric Young Jr., who had rounded second base when the ball was caught.
“The catch, I know I’ve made it before, but the throw is pretty crazy,” Laureano said after the game. “It was a crazy play, a crazy moment. I was shocked.”
