Penn State Baseball Turns Two Triple Plays in One Game


The Penn State Nittany Lions pulled off one of the rarest feats in baseball. Twice in one game!

In a matchup with Michigan State, the Penn State baseball team turned two triple plays. During the fourth inning, Nittany Lions shortstop Jim Haley snared a line drive before stepping on the second base bag and firing to first. Then in the eighth inning, Taylor Skerpon caught a rising liner and flipped to Haley who finished the deed by firing to first again.

Seeing a triple play is always an amazing sight. Seeing two of them is just ridiculous.
