The next question!

It's that time again! Here is the next question in Grandpa Roy's series. This question gives away only 1 point, and you guys need to think long and hard for this one. Please again if you know this inside out in your brain step up to the comment booth a.s.a.p but if you have to look it up please wait a little while. I don't know if you will check a website or not but please don't yet unless we need the help. Thanks, here's your question:

Recently Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki hit for the cycle becoming only the second player in major league history to 'cycle' and pull off an unassisted triple play. Who is the other player?

1. Troy Tulowitzki
2. John Valentin, correctly guessed by Offy

Every time he calls and asks me one, I will ask the fans. At the end of the year, whoever has the highest percentage of naming a correct player will get a prize. So, again, 1 or 2 names if you know it, no cheating, and please give everyone a try. The answers will be posted tomorrow. Thanks, Drew

Good luck!


  1. Former Red Sox John Valentin also has done both of these things. He had a couple of good seasons before Nomar came to town.

  2. a bit of research tells me George Burns - i didnt know myself - so if i dont get credit - its all good

  3. it's definitely john valentin.

    you know the funny thing about unassisted triple plays? when you're at a ballpark, it takes a little while to realize what happened (i saw the furcal one in st louis)


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
