This college triple play was a confusing, glorious mess

Triple plays don’t always make sense. From a defensive standpoint, they’re exciting for the team turning the triple play—a would-be rally by the opposition is instantly quashed, and usually in dramatic fashion.

But they can be confusing, sure, especially when there’s some chaos on the field of play The Saint Mary’s Gaels of Moraga, Calif., turned a triple play in their WCC Championship game against the LMU Lions on Friday at Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton, but oh yes, there was chaos.

With the bases loaded and nobody out, a liner trapped by the right fielder put things in motion. It didn’t put the baserunners in motion, however, circumstances which led to an unorthodox 9-2-5-6 (right field-to-catcher-to-third-baseman-to-shortstop) triple play

Not quite at the Babe Herman level, but close enough.
