Baseball Trivia Time:
 
One of the small, specialized parts of my Baseball Card collection is at least one card of each player who has hit 4 home runs in a game (17) (of course, I had to add to that group this year...with the most unlikeliest of names to be so added...Scooter?), each pitcher who has pitched a perfect game (23) (there was the flurry of those a few years ago), and one of each player who has performed the defensive version of these single-game superlatives, the unassisted triple-play (15) .

Many of us, I'll bet, can name most, if not all the pitchers and hitters involved, but how many of the slick fielding defenders can you recall?

On the honor system now, no published references.

The last fielder accomplished this feat eight years ago.

Mickey Morandini I remember as a kid.

I'll play!

Luis Aparicio, Ozzie Smith, Frank White, Mark Belanger, Ryne Sandberg, Joe Morgan, Phil Rizzuto, Rod Carew

Got them all!

If anyone on this list did it eight years ago, it was in a softball game for seniors.:D

Ron Hansen did it. So did Troy Tulowitzki. A Red Sox guy did it too, Valentin maybe?

Since I can't look it up, I'm sure I will have the spelling incorrect on Bill Wambaganass. I think it was in a World Series but I could be wrong.

Peter - very good - you got three - John Valentin


Cliff - we will award full credit for that difficult-to-spell moniker (Wambsganss - yes, I cheated).


The last two to do it have not been mentioned yet and one of them is also still active (along with Tulo)

I remember Eric Bruntlet did it against the Mets, maybe 2009?

Rafeal Furcal got an unassisted triple play I believe

Good work James and Nick. Bruntlett was the last one to accomplish it - in 2009, not 2008.

There are two more that did it this century including that second active player.


Any one who gets any of the ones who turned the trick in the twentieth century deserves a lot of credit.


Hint: one of the others may be easier for this crowd as he is included in the Monster.

- but the rest are pretty darn obsolete.
