Watch: Oakland’s Ramon Laureano makes unreal double play

Ramon Laureano

Ramon Laureano is wasting little time in making himself known.

The Oakland A’s rookie had a walk-off for his first career hit in a 1-0 win on Aug. 3. On Saturday night, he gave us one of the finest defensive plays of the season.

Laureano tracked down a ball deep in the left-center gap for an out and then fired a 321-foot throw to first to double up Eric Young Jr. to end the third inning.

What a play. Part of that may have been poor baserunning by Young considering he was well past second base, but who would have not only expected Laureano to make the catch, but to also make the unreal throw all the way to first to double up Young? He hit the first baseman in the chest on a fly from just in front of the warning track! Goodness.

Seeing an A’s outfielder make a throw like that against the Angels will remind a lot of fans about another former A’s outfielder.
