Here is the first of four batches of nominees for the 2015 play of the year. Small video of each has been embedded as a reminder of the play, or you can click on the header link, which will open a new tab with a larger version of the video on MLB.com. Pick your favorite of these five in the poll at the bottom. The winner of each group, and the highest-scoring runner up, will advance to the final vote, which will take place next week.
Nick Ahmed fields a sharp grounder in the hole at shortstop and makes a strong throw to first to retire Buster Posey
David Peralta nabs Corey Dickerson at home as he tries to score on Troy Tulowitzki's single, and after review the call is confirmed
Danny Dorn rips a double down the right-field line, driving in Jordan Pacheco and Aaron Hill to tie the game in the 9th inning
There's no stand-alone clip of this, but it can be seen at about 1:18 in the highlight reel. With the scores tied and the go-ahead run on third, Aaron Hill ended the inning with a flip to second of a wickedly-spinning ricochet off Randall Delgado. As we won 7-6, it kinda mattered.
Paul Goldschmidt clobbers a two-run home run to left-center field, his 11th of the season, tying the game at four in the 10th inning. There were two outs and he had two strikes on him.
