Triple Play!
2006-05-14 19:04
by Bob Timmermann

In the bottom of the sixth, Luis Castillo of the Twins bunted into a triple play. With Nick Punto on second and Shannon Stewart on first, both runners broke from their bases. Castillo popped up his bunt which Paul Konerko caught, threw to Tadahito Iguchi at first and then Juan Uribe at second.

The last triple play turned by the White Sox was on July 7, 2004 when they got a 5-4-3 ground ball triple play against the Angels. Bengie Molina was the batter.

The Twins last hit into a triple play on September 8, 1996 when Ron Coomer grounded into a 5-4-3 ground ball triple play against the Angels.

There is a listing of triple plays available at Retrosheet under "Special Lists".

I was broadcasting in the Alaska League and the team turned a triple play. Man, did I screw up that call.

Down by two runs with two runners on and no out, heart of the order up and Gardenhire orders a sacrifice from someone with a .410 OBP.

They deserved to lose.

Do "GITPs" get filed under "GIDPs"?

For reasons unknown, if you ground into a triple play, you don't get credited with a GIDP.

Preposterous. Who's in charge of this thing called "baseball" anyway?

It's just "one of those things."

I did see a guy on the Dodgers get credited with a GIDP without making an out at first. Adrian Beltre hit into a 5-4 DP against the DBacks.

Did anybody ever find Mickey Morandini's triple play ball? Or does Schilling still have it?
