The Un-Assist

It's only been officially recorded 15 times in MLB history; which is saying something because, depending on who you ask, Major League Baseball has been around either - since the Cincinatti Red Stockings were established in 1869 or since 1903 when the National Agreement was signed. Either way you figure it that's over 100 years and a lot of games to consider...So, what is this amazing feat that has only happened a few times? The unassisted triple-play.

And in case you missed it, the most recent unassisted triple play happened on August 23, 2009.

Now, upon doing some research, one will find that this has actually happened one time in each of the past three seasons, so maybe it's not THAT special. However, what makes Eric Bruntlett's unassisted triple-play that much more exciting is the fact that it was a game-ender...and it's only the second time in MLB history that that has happened.

This post is rated SPF 95 because the Mets just got burned (what else is new).
