Hidden-ball trick works to perfection, as confusion reigns in ballpark

The hidden-ball trick isn't anything new -- and it's not even exclusive to baseball.

But it still gets us every time.

I mean, how could you not love the facial expressions of the various people involved in the latest successful trickeration, including the player who was fooled and the fans in the background?

Or what about the complete bewilderment of the poor broadcaster who had to figure out in real time what exactly went on during the third inning of Monday night's Triple-A game between the Columbus Clippers and Indianapolis Indians?

Thank you for this, Clippers first baseman Jesus Aguilar. We love everything about it.
