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.

(June 1, 2007-Boston,Mass.) The Fenway Faithful playfully tease Alex Rodriguez by wearing masks of a blonde woman one day after A-Rod allegedly cheated on his wife with a blond exotic dancer/model. And, at bottom, also at the game, Christie Brinkley, former 1980′s heartthrob, can be seen doing “the wave” next to the Red Sox dugout. Both snapped for the Herald.
