If you’ve scanned some of the sports blogs on Saturday morning, you probably watched the video above of Minnesota Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks throwing out New York Yankees Vernon Wells as he attempted to stretch a hit into a triple.
You know how the internet can be and it got a little too excited by calling this play the “Throw of the Year.” Look, this is a phenomenal throw. It would be the throw of the year if this was Vernon Wells from 5 years/20 lbs ago because this Vernon Wells was running as if he was dragging the old Yankee Stadium behind him.
Hicks kind of air mailed it too and it was off target.
Adam Jones throwing out J.P Arencibia was a better throw/play last night.
Calm down internet, you don’t have to be so dramatic.
