More about Team Triple Plays

While some triple plays require a team to show off its defensive abilities, other triple plays are truly “fluky” events that only took place because of a combination of factors coming into play at the same time. As a result, there are rarely more than a half dozen triple plays a year in the entire league, and the leaders in this category are at the top of this list mostly due to luck. Triple plays almost always fall into one of two categories: 1) those in which a ground ball is hit to the third baseman very near to third base, who gets the force at third, throws to second for another force, and the out is made at first base for the third out, or 2) those with runners on first and second base in motion on the pitch and a line drive is hit up the middle directly at the shortstop or second baseman, who makes the catch, and tags both runners out before they can get back.
