Two things should never happen...

SDS
  1. Right fielders throwing you out at first base on a base hit.

  2. Any runner tagging up from third, getting thrown out at the plate when a cutoff man is used. I don’t care how slow the player is. This just isn’t possible because of the extra time it takes.

SDS

1.) I got thrown out from RF once in college.

And also once in HS.

2.) can’t attest to this personally. Given my, ahem, speed deficiencies as seen in #1, I wasn’t allowed to tag up very often in marginal situations.

If you know how to do a proper relay, it’s fast enough to get a runner

I just threw out Mookie at first from RF, tell me when that has ever happened? Getting thrown out at first should only be possible for players with a speed under 20.

SDS

Yeah that thrown out at first base thing is horse manure. I actually can’t remember it happening more than once or twice in the last 10 years. I will say it’s much better than in 18 or 19 when it happened a lot.

SDS

Holy hell! Here we go again. Do any of you? Have any of you ever seen a real baseball game?

Just number 1. Not even going to touch number 2.

It admittedly happens probably too much in this game but I don't think the occasions of it happening are unrealistic. It's usually a slow runner and the OFer playing shallow. With no context given to your Mookie example, perhaps the OFer was playing shallow and it was a really hard hit ball.

There is no context that for Mookie to get thrown out at first from RF, ever. RF was playing normal and it was a ground ball past my 2B on the dive. That is the only reason the 1B covered the bag. I just hit the button out of habit and Mookie was doing that stupid trot that they players do when they strike out on a pitch in the dirt.

Were you a catcher or third baseman?

SDS

Getting thrown out at 1B from RF is definitely possible and has happened before.

I will say though, I got thrown out at 1B from RF with Trea Turner running last year. Probably would never see that irl.

Should happen more when guys jog slowly on singles. Plenty of RFs just let the guys loaf...

Yeah, and I’ll bet if you “properly” flap your arms like a bird, you can fly too.

Catcher. But I wasn’t even a fatty beef Wellington or anything. I was just slow as [censored].

Bautista’s arm was far above average at that point in his career.

Did u really just say that a relay shouldn’t be able to throw someone out at home???

My main point is that it happens fairly frequently in actual play. Obviously, easier is the fielder has a cannon, but Roger Bernadina near the end of the clip was a journeyman player with a noodle arm (by 2014)...

Put Albert Pujols in the mix, lots of RFs would have a shot at nailing Mr. Zero-speed at first...

Yeah. When tagging up from third base. Impossible.
