Unusual Plays Newsbeat

Monday, July 30, 2018

Royals’ Salvador Perez turned an extremely rare unassisted double play by a catcher

New York had loaded the bases with no outs in the second inning when the Yankees’ Tyler Wade hit a tapper about 2 feet in front of the plate.

Royals catcher Salvador Perez sprang to his feet, touched home plate for the force and then tagged Wade for the second out.

It was over in a flash and Wade seemed a bit stunned because the double play happened while he was in the batter’s box.
