MLB All-Star Game Video: Manny Machado Shows off Leather and Arm with Great Play

Manny Machado did it again.

The Baltimore Orioles' talented young third baseman showed off his cannon of an arm during the 2013 MLB All-Star Game.

Machado robbed what looked to be a clear hit for Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who hit a rocket down the third base line. Goldschmidt looked like he could cruise into first, but Machado took away the hit.

Machado's play at third is arguably the play of the game for either side, and even his fellow All-Stars had to be impressed.

Machado floored even the best players in the MLB, which isn't an easy thing to do by any stretch of the imagination.

Announcer Joe Buck said he doubted that any other player in the league could make that play, and it's tough to think of anyone who could have.

Even Jon Paul Morosi chimed in on Machado's throw.

This isn't the first time we've seen Machado make a throw like this. Just about one week earlier, he threw across his body from foul territory to take away a hit from New York Yankees third baseman Luis Cruz.

There might as well be a permanent Manny Machado segment on Web Gems after this play, as he seems to show off his arm on a nightly basis.

I think fans would agree with me there.

Machado's play recorded the first out of the seventh inning, and David Wright singled right afterward. If he had not made the play, there's no telling whether or not the NL would have scored.
