    Just saw something in baseball, I've never seen. Col @ StL

    2 outs, runner on 1st. Strike 3 dropped but goes right in front of the plate. Wolters throws to 2nd with no one covering instead of the easiest of throws to 1st.

    Just saw a replay of this. My initial thoughts were that he didn’t realize it was strike 3 and just saw a runner try to steal, or he didn’t realize there were 2 outs. But video clearly shows he sees the batter take off for 1st, looks over and then decided to throw the ball into Center field. Weird all around.

    That's awesome. I thought he was going to do something worse when he went for the trash barrel. Well done.

    Agreed. I like that it’s all he did. He could have made a mess

    The follow up PSA was pretty good too.

    Rangers turned a 5-4 triple play last night. Bases load, no outs. Low liner to 3rd, one hopped. 3rd baseman Profar stepped on 3rd for out #1. Then tagged the runner who was on 3rd who had strayed off the bag for out #2. Then threw to 2nd for out #3 (a force out). Then Odor tagged the runner between 1st and 2nd, but it was moot as he was already forced. Apparently it was the first 5-4 triple play in the majors in over 100 years. It's more rare than an unassisted triple play

    I saw a graphic on the Angels broadcast that it was the first triple play since 1912 where the batter wasn’t one of the outs.

    I think the rare part is that it was the first triple play where the batter wasn't one of the outs since 1912. - no the 5-4 part (I seem to remember one of those somewhat recently).

    edit: Most recent 5-4 TP that I found was 9/12/07 https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/PHI/PHI200709120.shtml

    The best part is his presence of mind to throw it into the stands. As I watched the video I was thinking “but what’s he going to do with the ball?” Quick thinking.

    Also, does the fan who caught it (when it’s tossed back into the stands) appreciate that what he just caught is so much better than an ordinary foul ball? Or does he feel cheated that it’s not a REAL major league ball?

    Not a play exactly but I can't imagine this happens too often.

    Not unusual per se, but the best stare at HR, bat flip, slow trot you'll see.

    The bat flip is one thing, the slowest jog ever another but he SHOVED the catcher.

    Dude needs to be benched for a week. Or demoted. Fuck that guy.

    Demoted? He plays in Canada’s semi-pro Intercounty Baseball League. I don't think that is possible.

    Edit: and if you read the article, apparently he hurt (or possibly tore) his groin the inning before, accounting for the slow jog. Doesn't explain the flip, though.

    He seemed to be favoring a leg during that jog, maybe he was hurt?

    Ah, assumed it was minor leagues.
