Because triple plays are so rare, I thought I'd share this call that I'm not likely to see anytime soon, if ever again.
It was in a 1964 game between the Angels and White Sox. The White Sox had loaded the bases. Ken McBride was pitching for the Angels with Tommy McCraw batting.
"Here's Tommy McCraw for the second time today. Had a two-base hit earlier. Corners in, looking for two. The 1-0 pitch lined--and SNAGGED by McBride and now a COMEDY of errors--the guilty parties Robinson (Floyd) and Hansen (Ron). Los Angeles is going to get THREE outs on this play--1-5-3--as Robinson took off too early and Hansen--I don't know WHAT HIS excuse could be--was half way down to second base."
That was the only highlight of the day for the Angels, who eventually lost the game 12-0. It was in the second game of a doubleheader in which Los Angeles was shut out in both games.
