This week Twins catcher Willians Astudillo unveiled his own no look pass of sorts, as he threw back to first without ever looking towards the base.
He picked off Shane Robinson by a comfortable margin, as no one saw it coming, not even the pitcher. Luckily the first basemen was there to retrieve the amazing throw.
