The Rarest of Plays

 On a cool damp morning on May 20th 2017 at Bundt Park field 4, the Panther and the Tarheels of NHYBS Junior softball division were locked in the intensity of a closely played game.  The parent's, players and fans had no idea history was about to be made.

 

   It was the bottom of the 4th inning and the Panthers were up and had managed to load the bases and score a few runs without having anyone called out. Their rally was abruptly stymied by eight-year-old Kayla Appicelli who was playing the position of pitcher.

 

  A well hit line drive was placed with strategic precision directly up the middle.  Kayla charged back and managed to make an over the shoulder catch.  She had the immediate sense, being in close proximity to second base, to run to the base and tag it.   The advancing runner from second was immediately called out by what could only be described as a beautiful double play.

 

   This of course in and of itself would have been a tremendous play but Kalya was not done.  After a momentary pause Kalya tagged the runner who had advanced on the hit from first to second base who had not tagged up properly.   By tagging this runner Kayla had managed to complete one of the rarest of plays. 

 

To my knowledge this play is so rare that it has only happened 15 times in Major League baseball history.  It is so rare it has not happened since August 23rd 2009 by Eric Bruntlett who was playing second base for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Kalya had not even turned one year old the last time this feat was achieved.  This play is so rare that there have been more perfect games than this play.  It should also be noted that in all of major league history a pitcher has never performed this play.   

 

What was the play? It was an unassisted triple play.  To the absolute delight of all who were in attendance, Kayla singlehandedly squashed the Panthers rally and in the process performed what will now be the only known documented unassisted triple play in the history of Bundt Park and the first ever unassisted triple play in the history of NHYBS softball. 

Well done Kayla!
