Derek Jeter shows off some of his veteran moves by tricking a runner with a fake catch

Tuesday July 8th, 2014

Derek Jeter may not be the athletic shortstop he was when he first joined the league, but the longtime New York Yankees captain has picked up a few tricks since then, including Monday night's pantomimed double play during a high foul pop up, which seemed to trick Jason Kipnis of the Cleveland Indians and allowed him to be doubled off at first.

This seems like a pretty half-hearted fake out and it is pretty clearly a pop fly, so Kipnis may have just forgotten how many outs there were, but it could Jeter's aura that turns an otherwise able baseball player into someone fooled by a playground trick.
