Buck Showalter And The Story Of The Unassisted -Unassisted Triple Play

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

Saw this late last night on Baseball Tonight and it was just unbelievable enough to pass along here....plus Karl Ravech gets hit in the head with a Baseball (he had a helmet on). The BT Crew was discussing triple plays this season including Asdrubal Cabrera unassisted one earlier in the year. Afterwards Buck Showalter shared this story from his days in the minors....



I'm not calling Showalter a liar, but that's virtually impossible. Great story though and nice touch with the Red Sox and Yankees batting helmets ESPN.

It is virtually impossible for an anonymous commenter to stop being a douchebag.

if it's borderline impossible, that means it is in fact possible. 0.0000001% probability would still be possible... buy a dictionary asshat.

It's a turn of phrase Anon, but I apologize for ruining your day. One question though. What does a dictionary have to do with probabilities?

There's no way that happened. Buck probably spend his holiday weekend trying to come up with that.

As a broadcaster at the low levels of minor league baseball, I absolutely believe it's possible... inexperienced players, inexperienced managers, inexperienced umpires. You never know what will happen.

Yesterday I saw a runner credited with two caught stealings over the course of one pitch... while his team was trailing 7-0!

OK, so basically the runner on first acted like there were two outs, which would be why he wasn't really watching the ball. If that's the case--an overrun by one baserunner and an infield fly--then the story isn't as far-fetched as I thought.
