American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco, addresses the media during an NCAA football media day in Newport, R.I., Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015. The American Athletic Conference will probably lose at least one member to the Big 12. “I’ve been talking to the (athletic directors) and the president of the schools that might leave, and it looks like some of them will,” Aresco told Barnhart.
The 707th triple play in baseball history marked a series of firsts that are almost impossible to believe. The Washington Nationals were responsible for turning this historic triple play during Friday’s 4-1 win against the Giants. With the game on the line in the eighth inning, they executed a 3-5 triple play to escape the jam and leave the scuffling Giants absolutely stunned. Well, perhaps the most improbable reason it marked the first time this specific combination of fielders contributed to a triple play.
