GIF: White Sox infielders Carlos Sanchez, Alexei Ramirez team up for ridiculous play

White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez didn't want to be selfish and keep his Web Gem to himself.

Instead, he brought teammate Alexei Ramirez into the act in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Royals.

This looks like something out of the montage in "Angels in the Outfield" when they all start playing like a team with a little divine intervention:

 

 

That looks more like a play you'd see on the sandlot in a pickup game with guys playing together for years in their spare time. Not something from an eight-year veteran playing alongside a rookie second baseman in just his 81st big-league game.

The White Sox lost the game, but man was a that slick play.

White Sox catching prospect mentioned in some elite company

White Sox catching prospect mentioned in some elite company

White Sox catching prospect Zack Collins is being talked about in some elite company after a recent accomplishment.

Collins participated in the Southern League Home Run Derby in Double-A earlier this evening for the Birmingham Barons, and he secured his first career home run derby win.

Now, this is cool, thanks to NBC Sports Chicago’s stats guru Chris Kamka: Dating way back to 1895, Babe Ruth was born on Feb. 6, 1895. Collins was born on the same day as Ruth, but 100 years later.

It’s still way too early to make any sort of comparisons, but it’s a fun way to connect the two.

Collins so far this season is hitting .267 with 9 HR, 33 RBI’s and 59 BB in 62 games. Those walks lead the Southern League. The next highest is 39.

Collins is hitting much better than he did when he was with Single-A Winston-Salem last season. Collins hit a mere .233 in 101 games.

Think about this too. Rick Hahn mentioned several White Sox prospects will get promotions in the coming days. Could this mean Collins will get his opportunity? We’ll just have to wait and see.
