Last night, while I watched the Penguins and Flyers, the Blue Jays turned their first triple play since 1979. At least it was the first triple play called properly by an umpire, but more on that later.
With the runners moving in the third inning, Eric Hosmer hit a sinking line drive that Adam Lind caught. Lind ran to touch first, then threw to shortstop Yunel Escobar covering second, where Alex Gordon had no chance to get back in time.
Watch the Blue Jays' first triple play since 1979 while you can, MLB will likely have this down by noon.
1979 was so long ago, I barely remember that year, but I do remember a Blue Jays triple play in 1992 that was missed by umps. Here's that memorable triple play that wasn't called, and I was definitely watching this game.
Shoulda thrown, Kelly!
