Here is the hypothetical situation: Bases are loaded, no out. The batter hits an infield fly straight over the Third baseman’s head. Looks like an easy out.
Instead, the third baseman drops the ball, scoops it up, tags the runner on third, tags third base, and tosses it to first or second for a triple play.
Might a baseball player intentionally drop a fly ball to force better/more outs? Has anyone done such a thing?
