A Whiteville runner inched his way from first base, trying to get a leadoff to steal second base. Glancing at him from the mound was Gavin Lane, a left-handed pitcher for the Southwest Trojans. Patiently, Lane let the runner move farther and farther from first base, then snapped a throw to first baseman Logan Tripp, who tagged out the runner.
From the Trojan dugout, everyone cheered Lane. He perfectly timed the throw for the pickoff. It was an excellent move.
