Unassisted triple play

Ty Thomas, age 10, did something rare in a youth recreation league baseball game that many Major League baseball players have never even done – he completed an unassisted triple play. Thomas is a member of Obetz Team Yellow and he made his triple play in a recent game against Canal Winchester Team White. “Ty was pitching and caught a ball that was somewhere between a fly ball and line drive,” said his father, Aric Thomas. “The bases were loaded and he tagged out the kid running from second to third base and then went over and stepped on third base after Coach Alwood reminded him of that potential out, as well. It was an unassisted triple play. He was excited to turn the triple play and jogged off the field with his teammates, grinning the whole time.” The league includes teams from Groveport, Hamilton Township, Obetz, and Canal Winchester.
