  1. Triple play

    In baseball, a triple play is the rare act of making three outs during the same continuous play. There are many ways a triple play can be performed; most of them are done with runners on first and second base. Typically, a ball hit to the shortstop or third baseman is fielded, the runner heading to third is forced out or tagged out, the ball is thrown to second base for a force play, and then finally to first to throw out the batter. Another common sequence is a line drive to the shortstop or second baseman that is caught without the runners noticing or after they have taken large leads, the runners then being forced or tagged out when they fail to tag up.
