That is a great play.
One my daughter did as a senior in HS softball... She's playing 3rd base with a runner coming at her from second. The throw got to her late as the runner rounded third, she couldn't run her down and the catcher was out of position. So she kept the ball in her throwing hand and threw her glove at the runner. The empty glove hit the runner in the back. The runner stopped, thinking she was tagged. Then my daughter caught up and tagged her. The ump called the runner out, 3rd base coach went ballistic, and I had to go for a walk because I could not stop laughing.
