Only 15 times has one player single-handedly recorded all 3 outs in one half of an inning and recorded an unassisted triple play.
Now, a 6-year-old baseball player has done it too.
The big event took place at a Little League baseball game in Georgia, where the Dodgers and Braves were doing battle.
With a Dodgers player at-bat, a pop-up flew directly toward shortstop Ross Bernath, who caught the ball, raced over and touched third base, then chased down the advancing runner from second base.
One play, one player, three outs.
Sure, it’s a lot easier to record a triple play in Little League, where young players are still learning what to do in the event of a pop-up and the bases are much closer together, but it’s still fun to watch this little guy enjoy his big moment!
