Encyclopedia > Johnny Neun

John Henry Neun (October 28, 1900 - March 28, 1990) was an American first baseman for the Detroit Tigers and the Boston Braves from 1925 to 1931. Although never an everyday player (he never played more than 97 games a season), he entered baseball immortality on May 31, 1927, when he caught a line drive from Homer Summa, stepped on first to retire Charlie Jamison, and despite shouts from his shortstop to throw him the ball, raced towards second base to retire Glenn Myatt, completing the seventh unassisted triple play in MLB history. What made it more remarkable was that he was a first baseman and not a second baseman or shortstop, and that Jimmy Cooney of the Chicago Cubs had done it just the day before. A switch-hitter who threw lefthanded, Neun batted .289 with two home runs in 945 at bats during his seven-year Major League Baseball career.
