One of the oldest tricks in sports is the hidden ball trick in baseball, in which a defensive player will “hide” the baseball in their glove with the intent of tagging out a baserunner. Although rarely employed, it’s a perfectly legal move, and when done successfully is worth it if only for the dumfounded look on the unsuspecting base runner. However, the tricks that may be legal in baseball are not so well accepted in business valuation.
