And They Still Managed To Lose

Happy Earth Day a day (or two at his point) late!  Did anyone happen to see this remarkable play begun by a little-known third baseman in the top of the 6th inning against the Oakland A’s?  The first time such a feat was accomplished by the team since 1968 when one of the greats was involved.  The bad news is that he Yanks still lost.  The good news is… it did not matter, they still took the series!  There was even some squabbling between A-Rod and the pitcher for the A’s.  Something about how the Yankee made his way back to first base after a play… I dunno.

But check out the historic play… even though the A’s came out on top in the end.

    Yes, amazing when a team can pull off a triple play. As for your question, I did not see it of course until I watched the first part of your video, but you already know I’m the odd one out who doesn’t follow sports.

    That was fun to watch, even if it was the Yankees 🙂
    I loved the hitter’s sagging body language.
    This is making me wonder about the stats on triple plays – about how often are they pulled off, and how many end in the team’s defeat? Maybe I’ll have time to look it up when the kids go to bed…

    Those are good questions. The Mick was involved in the last Yankee triple play and that was in 1968!
