Quote: "Because a hit only counts as a triple without a fielding error or a fielder's choice, triples have become somewhat rare in Major League Baseball."
I agree with most of the paragraph, but this sentence is just bad. I suppose that it refers to the fact that a double plus an outfield error isn't a triple; nor is it a triple when a batter doubles with a runner on first and takes third on a subsequent throw home. But that should go without saying.WHPratt (talk) 17:28, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
