Detroit Tigers second baseman Danny Worth showed great range in the field, but a bad grip on the ball may have resulted in the worst throw ever by a pro baseball player during Friday night's game against the Colorado Rockies.
It happened in the top of the eighth inning on a grounder up the middle by Rockies first baseman Todd Helton. Worth ran to his right about 15-20 feet to snag the grounder, but could not get a good handle on the ball when he attempted the throw to first base. As a result, Worth's throw went virtually straight down into the ground.
Helton was given credit for an infield single, as only a perfect throw from Worth would have made the out. To say that Worth's throw was not perfect, however, would be a major understatement.
