Video: Bounce off head starts triple play

In a week that saw major league triple plays on two consecutive days, the minors have outdone the majors based purely on style points. This isn't exactly how Nashville Sounds center fielder Logan Scafer wanted to jumpstart a triple play, I'm sure, but it worked. After misjudging the line drive, Schafer zeroed in on it in deep center. The ball ended up hitting his glove and his head before he was able to make the catch. The two baserunners were so confused by it, the Sounds were able to turn it into a triple play.

Check out the video below.

With no outs the runner at second should have been glued to the bag until the ball hits the ground or glove.  Once it hits the glove he can tag (he doesn't need to wait until it is caught).  The runner on first should have been halfway, or at least close enough to get back if it's caught.  I'm not sure what the score was but they seemed a little too aggressive.  Not trying to take anything away from the catch, which was absolutely ridiculous!!!!

Shouldn't have been a triple play - Hit the fielders glove first - Runners can advance at their own peril when this happens - More great umpiring in professional baseball



WOW is all I can say to your comment. Did the ball hit the ground?? NO??? Triple play! The ignorance on these boards never ceases to amaze me.

I think you're trying to say that the runners tagged up on the play, but I don't think the runner from first would have been that far around second base if he had left first when the ball first hit the center fielder's glove.  And you can't even see the runner from second base in the shot.

Why should this not be a triple play? It was a catch.... not a clean catch but a legal catch for sure... as long as the ball does not touch the ground, or the wall after he bobbles it was a catch... Poor baserunning by the other team is all this play was about, with a lucky catch
