Triple Plays
« on: May 12, 2014, 09:50:11 pm »
There were 6 triple plays in D-3 this season.

One poster on another board wondered if one player has ever hit for the infamous "Cycle", i.e., a triple play, a double play, a single out. One might add a strikeout to make it a "quadricycle".  Two players hit for the "tri-cycle".  I don't know what other name we can give it, but please make suggestions.



In the first game of the DH with North Central IL on March 21, 2014, St Norbert 3B Derek Klegin hit into the triple play plus 2 K's and a single.

On April 2, 2014, Plymouth State catcher Dan Armstrong went 2 for 4 against Babson but hit into a triple play and a double play.  (He came close to the "cycle".)

Baldwin-Wallace 2B Mark Zimmerman went 2 for 5 scoring 2 runs and 5 RBI.  He hit into a double play in the first, 6-4-3. Zimmerman grounded to second in the 3rd.  He walked and scored in the 4th. He hit a 2-RBI single to right in the 5th.  He hit a 3-run homer in the 6th. The 5-4-3 triple play occurred in the 8th.  Final score Baldwin-Wallace 16, Wooster 12.

Not sure what the right name would be.

I put the list of 2014 triple plays back on D3baseball.com if you want to see the video of 5 of 6.

On Day #1 in the 2017 Regionals, we have had two triple plays.

In Tyler ("West Regional"), Cal Lutheran got a "walk-off" Triple Play on Concordia Texas (CTX). CTX had runners on 1st and 2nd, trailing 6-3 in the top of the 9th. A liner to the SS was converted quickly to preserve the first round win.

Here is the video link on the Day 1 Regional page for the Alvernia Triple Play against RIT.
