From Paul Skrbina at the Chicago Tribune on April 24, 2016:
The White Sox’s unprecedented 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play Friday against the Rangers wasn’t as easy as 1-2-3- for Dioner Navarro.
But history suggests the well-traveled catcher has an appetite for such firsts as it was his second involvement in turning three in a unique way.
That dawned on the well-traveled catcher late Friday when he was chatting with his wife and clearing his postgame dinner plate at home after spending most of the night behind home plate for the Sox.
Navarro, whose two roles in Friday’s triple play, the 703rd in history, are deonted by the new No. 2s in the official score line, also had two roles in the only 2-6-2 triple play in major-league history, according to sabr.org.
