‘Only 1.39 seconds to get to first base’ Fastest throw to first base ever, 24-year-old catcher “connected with the first baseman”

 San Francisco Giants catcher Patrick Bailey (24) caught an unbelievable finish checker. 

On the 2nd (Korean time), Bailey went 스포츠토토 0-for-1 as a substitute in a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, USA. He didn’t perform well at batting, but on defense he created a decisive check to end the game. 

In the top of the ninth inning, when San Francisco was leading 4-3, Bailey, who was driven to an unfavorable ball count with 2 outs and 1 strike at Christian Walker’s at-bat with 2 out and 1 base, threw a check ball to 1st base as soon as he received the 3rd ball from reliever Sean Manea. First base runner Gerardo Perdomo jumped to first base to return immediately, but first baseman Lamonte Wade Jr., who received Bailey’s throw, was faster and the first base referee declared an out. Arizona requested a video review, but the ruling was not overturned. 

Bailey’s amazing first base checker gave San Francisco a 4-3 victory. 

MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said, “Left-handed pitcher Manea earned his first save on this day. However, the last outcount came from catcher Bailey’s right arm, not Manea’s left arm.” 

Bailey’s first base pop time (time required for the catcher to throw a ball and reach first base) was only 1.39 seconds. MLB.com said, “This is the shortest pop time tie since Statcast began measuring in 2015. And among the throws that succeeded in catching the checker, the pop time was the fastest.” 

“I saw Perdomo, the runner on first base, walk away from first base,” Bailey said. “He looked like he was really about to steal. They were really aggressive runners, and this is a team that runs really aggressively. Before pitching, first baseman Lamonte’s eyes met and he seemed to be saying, “Yeah, good timing to check.” And the results were really good. It’s really cool to end the game like this,” he said, expressing his feelings about capturing a historic check.
