WOW! No respect for the rarest individual defensive gem (everyone would rather talk about Aaron Judge, etc.)

The remaining active player who has performed an unassisted triple play is:

Asdrubal Cabrera in 2008


The other player who did it this century, but has not been mentioned:

Randy Verlarde in 2000


The player who made the play and is included in 'The Monster' was:

Neal Ball in 1909 (the first recorded instance of this play)


The remaining players whose names are otherwise lost to history are:

George Burns in 1923
Ernie Padgett in 1923
Glenn Wright in 1925
Jimmy Cooney in 1927
Johnny Neun in 1927 (the day after Cooney's)

I find the long gaps in occurances like this (1927-1968) curious to say the least.

There was a similar gap in perfect game (1922-1956) and an 84-year gap between these first two NL perfect games and Jim Bunning's NL gem in 1964.

...and, as far as those much closer time-wise...

The Cooney and then Neun triple plays on consecutive days were the very first two perfect games which were only five days apart in 1880 by Lee Richmond and John Ward and, in 2012, there were three perfect games pitched within 4 months (Humber, Cain & King Felix).
