Minor leaguer pulls off a near-perfect replica of Derek Jeter's iconic jump throw

BY foxsports • September 5, 2016

Detroit Tigers prospect Dixon Machado made one of the throws of the year for the Toldeo Mud Hens Sunday, running to his right to snag a ball headed for the outfield and unleashing a perfect jump throw to nail the runner at first.

Look familiar? It's almost a carbon copy of Derek Jeter's preposterous throw in the 1998 ALCS against the Cleveland Indians.
