You can never get enough of the hidden ball trick. The way the pitcher has to stall for time and do little circles around the mound. The way the fielder has to play it off as if he's not hiding the loot. It takes you straight back to the diamonds of your youth. But what happens when the ball decides to participate in the hidden ball trick without the knowledge of the fielder? Roll the video above, that's what. Twins' third baseman Trevor Plouffe had made a difficult play in scooping up a two-hopper with a diving stop and all that was left was to make the long toss to first. It never came. Instead, the ball lodged itself in the webbing of Plouffe's glove in the second inning of Monday's makeup game with the Mets without his consent. He reached in once, reached in again and finally realized why he had come up empty. Well played ball. Well played.
