Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"A ballplayer can practice his swing, his curveball, or how he charges a bunt. Nobody practices an unassisted triple play . It's a fluke, rarer than a perfect game. 'That was one of the easiest plays I ever made,' Glenn Wright said. 'I couldn't help it.' Wright's fluke came on May 7, 1925 , when he was playing shortstop for the Pirates. In the top of the ninth with runners on first ( Rogers Hornsby ) and second ( Jimmy Cooney ), the Cardinals' Jim Bottomley smacked a line drive over second base. Wright snared it and stepped on the bag to double Cooney , who had started for third. He looked up to see Hornsby a few feet away, and tagged him. 'We were in the dugout before the fans realized they had seen an unassisted triple play .'" - Baseball Historian Warren Corbett (SABR Baseball Biography, Glenn Wright , Source )

Glenn Wright executed an incredibly rare unassisted triple play on May 7, 1925 . One of his "victims" that day was Jimmy Cooney , who turned the trick himself on May 30, 1927 , and Wright was in the dugout that day when it occurred!
