GIF: Crazy Pick-Off Move

MLB.com

First things first, I know this didn't work. The guy was safe. But that's beside the point. Is this the most creative pickoff move of all time? I've never seen anything like it. I mean his glove was literally on the ground by the time he threw the ball and his hat replaced his glove.

I had to watch the GIF like 15 times in a row to fully understand what I was watching. So even though the runner was safe, he gets an A+ for effort and creativity. Only thing that kind of sucks is that he can't use this move again. Once you've shown your hand, the trick is ruined. It's a one-and-done deal.
