In an earlier B game, Jason Bay launched a dinger to the opposite field. More importantly and more notably and more significantly and more everything, Jesus Montero hit a triple. It was not a double and a potential error. It did not involve an outfielder collision, it did not involve an outfielder falling down, and it did not involve anybody's death or incapacitation. Jesus Montero hit a legitimate triple against a legitimate group of professional and highly talented position players. There exists no video footage, which might be for the best, because I don't think any one of us is prepared to see that highlight. This is one of those things that might be best left to the imagination.
