Yoenis Cespedes Makes The Throw Of The Year [VIDEO]

Oakland A’s left fielder Yoenis Cespedes has one of the better arms in Major League Baseball. The only players I can compare to him are Yasiel Puig and Mike Trout.

Last night with the ball game tied at one and Mike Trout at the plate, Cespedes made baseball fans not be able to believe exactly what they had just seen.

The ball dropped short of Yoenis, he misplayed it and went all the way to the left field wall. You can see Cespedes look up to see where Howie Kendrik was and that’s when he picked up the ball and threw a seed to home plate for the out.

Is this the best throw you have seen? If not what is?

The debate around the office are two throws that could be better than the Cespedes throw:

Joe Ferguson in the 1974 World Series

Jose Guillen throws out Neifi Perez at third
