What makes baseball special

I'm almost don't want to do this post because I'm afraid I'll sound like Bob Costas or Ken Burns, but I can't resist mentioning it.

Because the Red Sox played a day game yesterday, their minor league team was on television last night. The Pawtucket Red Sox had men on first and second with no outs. A sharp grounder was hit to third and the Louisville Bats pulled off a perfect 5-4-3 triple play. I felt so lucky to be able to see this play.

In what other sport are there rare exciting plays like triple plays and inside the park homeruns?
