Even if you don't like baseball, you'll like this behind-the-back flip pass

The Tampa Bay Rays turned on the style last night.

THE TAMPA BAY RAYS treated baseball fans to a little bit of magic with this brilliant double play last night.

Watch shortstop Younel Escobar as he tracks the ground ball from Dustin Pedroia right up the middle and then, without blinking or missing a beat, flips it behind his back to the waiting Ben Zobrist.

Then watch as Zobrist, barely taking the time to think about his next move, fires the ball straight back to first base to complete the double play.

Remarkable awareness, skill and speed all rolled into one.
