    Triple Play

    It is inevitable that somebody has got to open a discussion about it, so I'll be the one.  I realize that it's mostly about luck and circumstance, but still such a great thang to behold when it's your team.  I don't think I can recall ever seeing one on a live broadcast.

    Scott Hatteburg hit into an unassisted one then in his next AB hit a Grand Slam. I can't think or anyothers I remember watching.

    Not sure of what team, but I recall seeing another triple play recently on ESPN.  I would say that it happened a couple of days ago.

    The Brewers had one against the Dodgers (second to first to home or some such odd route) Monday night.  They also had four double plays, for what were probably some quick innings.

    Re: Triple Play

    In all my years following the Red Sox this is the first one I ever witnessed on a live broadcast. Funny thing is, my wife had been asking me recently about triple plays. I told her I'd never seen one live before. I've been a fan since 1972 and she has only been one since the end of the 2003 season. And now she has witnessed 2 championships and a triple play! But she had to pay a steep price to do this. She had to marry me!

    The great thing about this one was that it was done the traditional way, the hard way.  I've seen replays of other triple plays but they were of the type where a fielder catches a ball that the runners thought was uncatchable so the runners got caught 90' from their base.This was a traditional 5-4-3 and it was pretty darn impressive!

    yeah, that triple play; makes you almost forget the SOX had a total of 6 hits in that day-nighter. not to worry, they'll start hitting again when they get back to fenway.
    hold on; what's that? they are back at fenway. nevermind.

    The "triple play" was fun to watch and at the time really pulled us out of a possible big inning for the Rays.

    Only 30 of them in the entire history of the team, and you certainly don't see them completed around the horn that often. For me, it was living testament to why Pedey is the best second baseman in the league, especially when you add his "damn the torpedoes full steam ahead" way of playing the game, which may be unmatched in all of MLB. In my days, I was a second baseman, and there is certainly no one in the league I enjoy watching play more than Pedey (and on that play, he got rid of the relay faster than anyone I have seen recently).

    The triple play I remember was the one Jody Reed grounded into....I was watching the game at a friend's house and her father commented: "wow - you don't see that too often.  Too bad it was against us."

    Re: Triple Play

    The triple play was nice but unfortunately the thrill was kind of snuffed out by subsequent events in the game, including the double steal by the Rays.

    However, to end on a positive note, I agree with pschuller that it was an absolutely phenomenal turn at second by Pedey.  The guy is unreal.

    Re: Triple Play

    When the ball is hit right near the third base bag , it is not that much different from your standard around the horn double play. Pretty much tailor made. Nice to see , but it can't obscure the poor throws to the plate by Lowrie and the overall lack of offense. The triple play is small consolation for the loss.

    Actually, I find any triple-play entertaining in and of itself.  It is rare, so it's fun to see no matter which team (unless you are a fan of the team that just hit INTO the triple-play...and even then it's fun...if your team still wins the game, that is...) turns it.  Wink
