Kudos and three attaboys to Boston Globe photographer Jim Davis, left, who says he's been prepared for more than 20 years just in case he ever got a chance to photograph a triple play. His chance finally came in the Red Sox game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday—and he was ready. Got the shots, all three of them. Boston.com has a short video of Jim describing how he did it.
Strong work. That'll make a nice triptych for the wall.

Mike replies: That video is great. Thanks.
Featured Comment by John Bohn: "I had the pleasure of working alongside Jim Davis for nearly 20 years at the Boston Globe. Jim is never not prepared to successfully photograph a possible triple play! This goes along the thought process of a photographer keeping his head in the game at all times."
