20 years ago tonight, Boston Red Sox John Valentin records unassisted triple play.

I was there 20 years ago tonight, as I was working my night shift at the Boston Herald, when John Valentin recorded an unassisted triple play. He was so nonchalant that the photo I got of the play was not even worth putting up on this blog. I did, however snap this photo in 1995 at the request of Boston Herald baseball guru and all-around nice guy Steve Buckley. I dug up this photo on the occasion of  the 20th anniversary of  John Valentin’s unassisted triple play, July 8, 1994. From left, Johnny Pesky, Rico Petrocelli, Rick Burleson, Spike Owen and John Valentin.
