A former Boston Red Sox prospect pulled the ultimate fake-out in Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League.
Che-Hsuan Lin, a center fielder for the Fubon Guardians, played nine games with the Red Sox in 2012 and was considered a top defensive prospect. That defense was put on display against the Uni-President Lions.
Lin robbed Lions hitter Pan Yen-Ting of a home run, but acted like he didn't make the catch. Lin's nonchalant demeanor hilariously fooled everyone in the stadium, including the batter who proceeded to round the bases and celebrate what he thought was a two-run homer.
You don't see that every day.
Lin's robbery proved to be the difference-maker as the Guardians went on to win, 4-3
