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.

Very funny, but just brutal base running. Two on and nobody out, you just can't run yourselves out of such a golden opportunity. This was definitely a teachable moment.

He made a great play to recover the ball of his head but for those runners to make it a triple play you can see why it's not a major league team hope the coaching staff shows them the replay and tells them there mistake.
