Double plays aren’t uncommon in baseball. But getting two outs on the same play at home plate? That’s something you don’t see every day.
That exact scenario happened Monday during the Toronto Blue Jays’ spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Pittsburgh had the bases loaded with one out when Oneil Cruz sent the ball to deep center and off the wall. More often than not, two runs usually can score on a play like that, but it wasn’t the case here.
Pittsburgh’s Kevin Kramer stumbled rounding second right in front of teammate Jason Martin, who tried to score from first. It put the two runners right next to each other on the base paths.
The outcome? Blue Jays catcher Patrick Cantwell making a rare two-out play at home.
