Hanley Ramirez uses trickery to tag out Shin-Soo Choo (Video)

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez used some trickery to fool Cincinnati Reds runner Shin-Soo Choo on the basepaths and tag him out during Thursday night's game at Dodger Stadium.

It happened in the top of the eighth inning with one out and Choo on first base. Reds batter Joey Votto singled to center field, with Choo running on the pitch. However, Choo lost sight of the ball, and Ramirez took advantage by pretending to field a grounder and tag second base. Choo thought he was out and began running back to first base, but then saw Dodgers center fielder Andre Ethier with the ball. Choo stopped running as he found himself completely hung out to dry, and Ethier tossed the ball to Ramirez at second for the easy putout.

Looks like Ramirez is playing in the right city with an acting performance like that.
