DURHAM, N.C. -- It was early August at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, and Ken Oberkfell's Norfolk Tides were staked to a 6-1 lead in the fourth. With Brian Daubach on third and Anderson Hernandez on first and nobody out, Norfolk catcher Mike DeFelice hit a fly ball to right field.

The play was the Norfolk manager's first meeting with Devil Rays outfielder Delmon Young, who caught the ball in right. It is a meeting he will not soon forget.

Daubach tagged up from third as Young unleashed a laser to catcher Tim Laker at home plate. The throw beat the veteran first baseman by two feet, and Laker easily tagged him out.
