A New Jersey high school baseball team went viral because of how it was able to pick up a victory on the diamond.

Delsea Regional High School was in a tight matchup against Audubon High School on Saturday. In the seventh and final inning, Audubon had runners on first and second base with two outs and down one run.

Delsea pitcher George Starr appeared to attempt a pickoff at second base.

It looked like he had thrown the ball to one of the infielders and like the ball had made its way to center field.

However, Starr still had the ball in his hand and tagged the unsuspecting Audubon base runner out as he tried to run to third base.

It was a well-executed hidden ball trick.

“We were all fooled, and the game is over,” the broadcaster said.

Delsea coach Joe Smith wrote on X, “Kids sold it perfectly.”

Starr also had the go-ahead RBI in the sixth inning, according to 97.3 ESPN South Jersey.

He helped Delsea to the 4-3 victory.

“Definitely never thought I would wake up to this,” Smith added on X as the play appeared on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”

Delsea moved to 5-1 on the season and is one of the best teams in New Jersey’s Tri-County conference. Audubon fell to 2-3.
