Willians Astudillo was feeling it Monday night.
During the sixth inning of his team’s spring training game against the New York Yankees, the Minnesota Twins catcher pulled off one of the gnarliest pickoff throws you’ll ever see. For reasons currently unknown, Astudillo found the gall to launch a no-look throw to first base — and it worked.

What a savage.
Now, was this play pretty cool? Absolutely. But honestly, we can’t help but wonder how hilarious it would’ve been if Astudillo overthrew his target and sailed the ball into right field.
But hey, spring training’s all about trying new things.
