Deke of The Week

by Michael X. Ferraro

There is no base coach at second.
Otherwise, Kipnis may’ve reckoned
that Jeter’s feigned catch was deceit
to get him to slide on his seat.
But doubled off first, he got burned
with a bitter life lesson learned:
Always keep your eye on the ball–
Not the guy who’s stamped for the Hall.

Here’s a video of Derek Jeter’s play at second that confused Jason Kipnis on Monday. Heh heh.
