2001 Boston's backstop Scott Hatteberg hits into a triple play, but the catcher redeems himself in his next at-bat by hitting a grand slam putting the Red Sox ahead in a 10-7 win over the Rangers. The triple killing, the third in Texas history, occurs when Hatteberg lines to shortstop Alex Rodriguez who flips to second base doubling up the runner on second with second baseman Randy Velarde tagging the running arriving from first.

A granny from Hattie would be nice tonight.

Well, as Scarlett O'Hara said (I can't believe I'm quoting her): "Tomorrow is another day"

I never knew Hatte played for Boston before two days ago. All anyone ever talked about was him and Billy Beane and the As, so I never knew who he caught for. Then I read an article in SI about catching the knuckler, and Doug Mirabelli was talking about his first time catching it, and how he and the other catcher, Scott Hatteburg, had a good laugh.

Ok, and then I found 5 dollars, happy?
