Watch: I-Cubs Second Baseman Mike Freeman Makes Insane Behind-the-Back Throw
First, apologies for the quality of the screencap, but MiLB video is only so good in some cases. Besides, I kinda feel like there’s a certain urgency and authenticity to the grainy still I managed to snip.
After allowing a home run to the first batter he faced, Justin Grimm proceeded to strike out the next two Memphis Redbirds. Then he jammed Wilfredo Tovar, who cued a soft pop toward Iowa Cubs second baseman Mike Freeman. What happened next will shock you…

Ed. note: the quality of the video clearly threw me, as I had initially thought the ball was a grounder. Herp derp.
