Insane double play from Florida star outfielder Wyatt Langford.

Florida Gators standout outfielder Wyatt Langford is seen by most to be a future star at the next level as a potential five-tool player. His skills were on display Thursday night against the Kentucky Wildcats with a terrific game highlighted by a ridiculous double-play.

Langford started off the game with a bang at the plate as the No. 2 hitter in the Gators lineup.

Second baseman Cade Kurland got on base ahead of him with a leadoff double. He matched it with a double of his own to get out to an early 1-0 lead.

He added to his hot start with another RBI double in the top of the sixth inning to help the Gators take control of the game. They would go on to five runs in the inning to make it a 7-2 lead.

Langford would get his third hit of the game in the top of the seventh inning and later score. While this would be his last hit in the game, he still had plenty to show off when it came to his skill in left field.

Kentucky designated hitter Chase Stanke roped a line drive into left field. It likely should have been a hit for him, but Langford made a terrific sliding play to make the catch.

The second base runner thought the ball would drop in, so he was halfway to third base when the catch was made. Langford then unbelievably had the presence of mind to throw the ball while sitting on the outfield grass back for the double play.


Many around the baseball world took to social media to praise Langford for his terrific effort.

Plays like this are exactly why Langford is listed on as the No. 3 prospect for the upcoming 2023 MLB Draft.
