Breaking down the Brewers’ triple play in scientific terms

Aug 19, 2011, 5:40 PM EST

I can’t say I watch much SportsCenter, so I didn’t see this little Sports Science segment breaking down the exact timing of the Brewers’ triple play against the Dodgers earlier this week when it aired. But thanks to Bob Wolfley over at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, it was brought to my attention.

Neat:

    It’s awesome to know this type of play is even more rare than a perfect game.

    That’s not really science.

    plus, the glove flip was a hard throw to catch and perhaps and transfer and underhand would have saved time for bettencourt

    Still prefer your cookie cutter 5-4-3 triple play Craig?
