27 days until opening day: They say the triple is the most exciting play in baseball. It’s hard to argue when you see a sharply hit ball bounce into one of the outfield corners, take a wicked hop and go in the opposite direction of a hard-charging outfielder.
It gets better when the batter sees this happen and turns on the afterburners, chugging his way to third base.
The SeaWolves hit 27 triples last season, led by Michael Rockett and Niuman Romero with four each.
