5/14/06 Pretty in Pink

While watching the ESPN Sunday night baseball game, I saw 3 things I've never really seen live.

1) A triple play (this one I'm not sure about. I may have seen one live before). It was the first triple play in the majors in more than a year.

2) A shortstop dodging a broken bat while charging, scooping up the ball and throwing the runner out

3) Men using pink bats and wearing pink arm bands.

(Added later) - I saw a 4th thing that NONE of us have EVER seen before. A starting pitcher giving up 7 runs in the 1st inning and still winning the game. Congratulations (??) to Mark Buehrle for pulling off the feat for the first time since September 29th, 1900.

I don't think I've ever seen a triple play in person either. I'm pretty sure I've seen the broken bat dodge and I know I saw the pink bats at Wrigley today.
