Juan Uribe Gets Special Gift From Teammates In Wake Of Hidden Ball Trick Debacle

  • Rick Chandler

The big question for me is: what was third-base coach Tim Wallach — himself a former All-Star third baseman — doing while Juan Uribe was being tagged out on the hidden ball trick on Saturday?

Wallach says he knew what was happening, and was telling Uribe to stay on the bag. That didn’t work. Next time …

While he was listening, Uribe shifted his weight just enough for his foot to come off the bag, and Longoria slapped the tag for the out.

“I didn’t make it clear enough,” said Wallach.
