SportsCenter is full of homeruns and strikeouts, but rarely is the inning-ending 6-4-3 double play highlighted on the show. The shortstop’s approach to the grounder, the second baseman’s transfer and leap, and the first baseman’s stretch are things of beauty, and more symphonic than the performances on the mound or in the box, and yet underappreciated.
