New Jersey HS baseball team uses hidden ball trick to win game


A New Jersey high school baseball team went viral last week because of how it was able to pick up a victory on the diamond.

Delsea High School was in a tight matchup against Audubon High School. In the seventh and final inning, Audobon had runs on first and second base with two outs and down one run.

Delsea pitcher George Starr appeared to attempt a pick-off at second base. It looked like he had thrown the ball to one of the infielders, and like the ball had made its way to centerfield. However, Starr still had the ball in his hand and tagged the unsuspecting Audubon baserunner out as he tried to run to third base.

It was a well-executed hidden ball trick.

“We were all fooled, and the game is over,” the broadcaster said.

Delsea coach Joe Smith wrote on X, “Kids sold it perfectly.”

Starr also had the go-ahead RBI in the sixth inning, according to 97.3 ESPN South Jersey. He helped Delsea to the 4-3 victory.

“Definitely never thought I would wake up to this,” Smith added on X as the play appeared on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”
