The glove purportedly used by Bill Wambsganss to turn the only unassisted triple play in World Series history was sitting on a closet shelf in Minnesota.
If Bill Wambsganss hadn’t been as astute while playing second base for the Cleveland Indians in the 1920 World Series, maybe it would have only been a double play. And Wambsganss would be simply a really good Scrabble word.
No one has done it since, so "Wamby" lives on in baseball trivia and lore. No one knew what had become of the glove that made history…except Bill Overby.
