The Royals’ Whit Merrifield has 15 stolen bases on the year, and Rangers pitcher Bartolo Colon had yet to pick off a baserunner this season heading into tonight. In this case, one would think that the 29-year-old on first base would have the clear advantage over the 45-year-old on the mound. But that’s the problem with millennials, my friends: They have no respect for their elders’ pick-off moves.
This highlight is no match for Colon’s unassisted pick-off from a couple years ago, but check out the quickness from the elderly righty! Generation X still has some life left in it.
