If Lin Che-Hsuan is looking for another career outside of baseball, becoming a mage can be a good way out.
The Taiwanese goalkeeper withdrew his hands during Friday’s Chinese professional baseball league match between the Fubon Guardians and the Uni-President Lions. At the bottom of the sixth inn, when the result was tied in two runs, Lion Pan Chieh-Kai walked to the plate and smoked the field into the deep center field. Linas chased and almost grabbed the ball against the wall, but he came a little short – that’s what everyone thought.
As Pan celebrated the running of his home, Linas threw the ball back inward, causing confusion for the players. Did Linas really catch it?
Yes, he did. Repetitions showed that the ball clearly landed in Lino’s glove. The English show crew couldn’t believe it.
– Wow, what just happened?
This robbery proved to be quite important as Lino’s guardians eventually beat the lions by a score of 4-3.
The next time the batsman drives the fly ball in the direction of Lino, he should probably wait at least a few seconds before getting too excited. Linas could just hide the ball in his back pocket.
