Video: College Softball Team Pulls Off A Stunning Hidden-Ball Trick

A college softball team uses the hidden ball trick to perfection.

The only thing better than a hidden-ball trick is a hidden-ball trick that sends a team to the World Series.

That's what happened during a college softball game in Indiana over the weekend, with Trine University pulling off the epic move to get to the College World Series.

The Thunder were leading, 3-1, in the final inning when their opponent, SUNY Geneseo, had two outs with runners on first and second base.

Kate Saupe, a senior pitcher, faked a throw to second base, with the infielders acting like the ball had gone into the outfield. The runner on second base made her way to third, but was easily tagged out by the pitcher.

Check this out:

It doesn't get much better than that.

The Thunder head to the College World Series, where they will take on Illinois-Wesleyan in the first round this week.
