Penn State turns two triple plays in one game (VIDEO)

Triple plays don’t happen all that often. The major leagues average roughly four triple plays each season. So that's what makes this pair of triplets by the Penn State baseball team even more amazing.

During the first game of Friday's doubleheader against Michigan State, the Nittany Lions baseball team managed to turn two triple plays in the span of four innings. The first came in the fourth inning, the second in the eighth inning.

Here's video of all six outs on two plays:

According to the Associated Press, it is the second time in NCAA Division I history that a team turned two triple plays in one game. Gonzaga did it against Washington State back in 2006.

While Penn State got the double-triple, Michigan State got the 4-2 win.
