Fish Tricks

With runners on first and third and one out, the score was 5-4 in favor of Florida in the top of the 8th. The Diamondbacks were 90 feet away from tying when third baseman Mike Lowell executed the hidden ball trick. The Arizona center fielder, Luis Terrero, strayed from third and was tagged out by Lowell for the second out. Todd Jones, a member of the Red Sox for part of 2003, had to stay off the mound for the trick to work, and he did so. Jones struck out Craig Counsell to end the inning. Another former Red Sox player, Tony Clark, was part of the action; he pinch-hit to put the runners at the corners.

For other successful hidden ball trick plays, see Retrosheet. Bill Deane, compiler of the list, still has holes in the data, so if you can help him, be sure to contact him.
