Fangraphs: An Interview With Jim Gentile

Recommended Posts

Was looking at Gentile on baseball reference. He finished 3rd in the 1960 rookie of the year voting. Oriole Ron Hansen finished 1st and Oriole Chuck Estrada finished 2nd. Not to shabby.

Hansen once made an extremely rare unassisted triple play.

It was the first one on the Major Leagues in more than 40 years (1927), and would not be done again for almost another quarter of a Century (1992.)

 

 

Perhaps one of the craziest occurrences ever was the fact that in 1927, unassisted triple plays happened on back-to-back days on May 30th and May 31st !!! ) :eek:
