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, according to

After slamming at the brakes, Laureano grew to become and fired a strike at the fly to first baseman Mark Canha to double up Eric Younger Jr., who had rounded 2d base when the ball was once stuck.

“The catch, I do know I have made it earlier than, however the throw is lovely loopy,” Laureano mentioned after the sport. “It was once a loopy play, a loopy second. I used to be stunned.”

So have been his teammates.

“That is the most efficient throw I have ever noticed,” A’s shortstop Marcus Semien mentioned, “no less than the farthest throw I have ever noticed at the line.” 

In keeping with Statcast, the throw was once clocked at 91.2 mph.

A’s outfielders have a up to date historical past of constructing ridiculous throws in opposition to the Angels, particularly former Oakland outfielder Yoenis Céspedes.

Consider this one from June 10, 2014? The sufferer then was once Howie Kendrick.
