Cubs Fact:

On May 30, 1927, Cubs shortstop Jimmy Cooney turned an unassisted triple play against Pittsburgh in the fourth inning. He caught Paul Waner's line drive, stepped on second base to retire Lloyd Waner, and tagged Clyde Barnhart off first.
Please don't feed the psychos.

So it's safe to assume all those runners were former Cubs?

they may not have even had base coaches back then....Big Poison and Little Poison...both Hall of Famers....

I don't think I have ever seen a triple play live....

Of course I have never seen many things by primarily restricting my baseball viewing to the Cubs
