The Orioles Just Turned An Embarrassing Dropped Pop Up Into A Crazy Triple Play

Funny and Happy

The Baltimore Orioles turned a dropped fly ball by shortstop J.J. Hardy into a pitcher’s best, but rarest friend … the triple play!


If you guessed inning-ending triple play when that ball left the bat, then congrats! You’re a liar!

The Red Sox have been playing ball at Fenway Park for more than 100 years, and I can’t imagine seeing a wackier triple play in that ballpark’s history. Leave it to the sure-handed (and ultra lucky) J.J. Hardy to turn a bone-head moment into the ultimate brain cramp for Boston’s base runners.

Not quite what you want out of a two-on, no out situation … unless you’re an Orioles pitcher, of course.
