The Oakland A’s turned a triple play last night against the Twins. So what?
There are triple plays and there are triple plays. This one was an around-the-horn double play — nobody gets all excited about around-the-horn double plays — except that a guy just happened to be on second and the thirdbaseman came down on the bag shortly before almost throwing the ball into rightfield.
So what are the rarest plays in baseball? How about turning two triple plays in one game? And losing? It’s on this list.
Take a guess what team did it.
