This baseball play is LEGENDARY in Toronto… We Canadians STILL talk about it, 20 years later - insisting it WAS a TRIPLE PLAY! I wonder if Bob Davidson feared for his life afterwards.
“In the fourth inning of the first World Series game ever played outside the U.S., Toronto centerfielder Devon White turned, sprinted and made a back-to-the-ball, chest-to-the-wall, backhanded, face-planted catch of a Dave Justice drive to deepest center. His catch touched off what should have been a triple play for Toronto: Braves baserunner Terry Pendleton passed teammate Deion Sanders on the base paths for the second out of the play, and Jay third baseman Kelly Gruber tagged Sanders on the right heel for the third out. Alas, second base ump Bob Davidson blew the call, ruling that Gruber had missed Sanders, erasing what would have been the first World Series triple play since so long ago (1920) that it was the Cleveland Indians who made it.”
