John Valentin thought there was already one out when he took part in this spectacular event and after the game he said, "The irony is that I thought there was one out. After I caught the line drive and touched second, I saw the scoreboard over the first base dugout. It had a big 0 next to outs. For good measure, I tagged Kevin Mitchell who was chugging toward me from first. The baseball gods were looking down on me that day."
On July 8, 1994, John Valentin became the second Red Sox player involved in an unassisted triple play. The first was first-baseman George Burns who turned his on September 14, 1923!
Did you know that his glove was stolen after the game? In an interview done later he commented, "My only regret is that the glove was subsequently stolen. I wanted to give it to my dad."
