It took 36 years for the first triple play to be turned at Dodger Stadium
But 17 years ago, with the Rockies visiting the Dodgers, the fans in attendance witnessed history when pitcher Darren Dreifort fielded a bunt and kicked off a 1-6-4-5 triple play -- the first within the confines of Dodger Stadium.
Any play featuring Bobby Bonilla is a good one, but especially if it's the first triple play in your stadium's history. And there's nothing like getting the first one under your belt -- there have been three triple plays turned at Dodger Stadium since, including two in 2014.
But the Dodgers' opponents that day were less impressed. Maybe it was because it was the first time the Rockies were ever on the receiving end of a TP (or involved in a triple play, at all), but Kurt Abbot, whose bunt started the play, was pretty clear in his post-game interview with the Associated Press:
Well, he is technically correct: The Rockies prevailed, 4-2.
