SPRING ARBOR, Mich. – Freshman Chris Triplett was featured on Bleacher Report's Instagram account after a phenomenal play during the Spring Arbor University baseball team's 3-0 win over Indiana Wesleyan University in the first round of the Crossroads League Tournament on Saturday.
The third baseman showcased his speed, ranging all the way to the first base foul line and making a tremendous diving grab on a bunt attempt in the sixth inning. Not only did he make the catch, but had the awareness to throw on to first base, from his knees, to double off the runner and help preserve SAU's narrow 1-0 lead at the time.
With the victory over the Wildcats, the Cougars move on to play Mount Vernon Nazarene University on Monday, May 9 at Huntington University in Huntington, Indiana. First pitch is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
