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.
