|Velarde's triple play catches Yankees on the run|
|While baseball lists 10 unassisted triple plays in the regular
season, there was also one in the postseason -- and perhaps the most
famous ever. Cleveland's Bill Wambsganss turned an unassisted triple play in
the fifth game of the 1920 World Series against Brooklyn. The last unassisted triple play in the majors came July 8, 1994, when Boston's John Valentin turned it against Seattle. It is Oakland's seventh triple play and first since April 7, 1996, against Detroit. The Athletics had never turned an unassisted triple play in their history.
