Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"As a coach, Morandini has tried to stress the principles of hard work to his players. He was never a prolific home-run hitter, instead preferring to refer to himself as 'a fundamental guy.' 'I wasn't the strongest or the fastest,' Morandini said. 'I kind of had to work harder than everybody else. That's what I'm trying to instill in these kids -- repetition and hard work.'" - By Kevin Horan / MLB.com (August 21, 2008, 'Where are they now? Mickey Morandini', Source )

Did you know that Mickey Morandini ( September 20, 1992 ) and Eric Bruntlett ( August 23, 2009 ) are the only second baseman in National League history to turn an unassisted triple play ?

The American League second baseman who have turned unassisted triple plays are Bill Wambsganss ( October 10, 1920 ), Randy Velarde ( May 29, 2000 ), and Asdrubal Cabrera ( May 12, 2008 ).

The unassisted triple play by Wamby on October 10, 1920 , actually took place in Game 5 of the 1920 World Series , making Mickey Morandini the first second baseman in baseball history (not just the National League) to turn an unassisted triple play during a regular season game.
