There have been 15 unassisted triple plays in the history of Major League Baseball, none of them by Yankees players.
There have been 15.
According to the Society for American Baseball Research, there have been 13 unassisted triple plays in MLB since 1876, the first being in 1909. That would make the odds of an unassisted triple play about 1 in every 10 years. Interestingly, these things seem to come in groups. Six of the thirteen came in the 1920s. Three of the thirteen have come in the 2000s. And on top of that, there were unassisted triple plays on successive days in 1927. On May 30, 1927 shortstop Jimmy Cooney of the Chicago Cubs turned an unassisted triple play against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The very next day first baseman Johnny Neun of the Detroit Tigers turned an unassisted triple play against the Cleveland Indians.

UPDATE: There was a 14th unassisted triple play on May 12, 2008 when Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians notched one against the Toronto Blue Jays.
No, not a batter. Pitchers have struck out the side, and there have been unassisted triple plays though
There were two unassisted triple plays to end games: * Johnny Neun of the Detroit Tigers on May 31, 1927 * Eric Bruntlett of the Philadelphia Phillies on August 23, 2009
There have been a few unassisted triple plays in baseball history. Also, 3 strikeouts could qualify under your criteria. I'm sure there have been other 1-2-3 unassisted innings in baseball. How about three fly balls, three pop ups, three ground balls to first. Happens all the time in MLB games.
Yes, he plays for the New York Yankees.
I saw one made by Brandon Morrow of the Seattle Mariners,but I know that there must be more of these plays!
On a hit and run play, runners on first and second, the batter hits a line drive to the second baseman, he makes the catch for the first out tags the first base runner for the second out and steps on second for the third out.
No. Glenn Wright was playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates at the time, who were at home to the St Louis Cardinals. St Louis were leading 10-9 when Wright's unassisted triple play ended their inning, but because the Pirates were trailing they had to play out the bottom of the ninth. 10-9 ended up being the final score. Only two of the fifteen unassisted triple plays in the MLB have ended the game: Johnny Neun of the Detroit Tigers, who beat the Cleveland Indians 1-0 on May 31, 1927, and Eric Bruntlett of the Philadelphia Phillies, who beat the New York Mets 9-7 on August 23, 2009.

For all triple plays in MBL, the number varies from year to year -- sometimes as few a zero (in 1961 and 1974) and sometimes as many as 19 (in 1890). Since the 1930 season, there have been a total of 314 triple plays in MLB, which averages out to about 3.8 triple plays per season.

Rafael Furcal Here is a link to the story on ESPN's site about the unassisted triple play that Furcal made: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/story?id=1593632 To quote: With runners on first and second, Furcal made a leaping grab of pitcher Woody Williams' liner. The runners were going on a 1-1 pitch, and Furcal stepped on second base to double up Mike Matheny before tagging out Orlando Palmeiro as he made a futile attempt to scamper back to first. Just to let you know, another unassisted triple play was made in the 5th game of the 1920 World Series by Bill Wambsganss, the Cleveland Indians' second baseman. There were runners on first and second with nobody out. Wambsganss grabbed a screaming line drive, stepped on 2nd base, and tagged the runner who was on first base, now only a few feet away from Wambsganss (both runners were running because they both thought it was a sure hit). Some useless trivia here: As of July 31, 2007: There have been 13 recorded unassisted triple plays in MLB history. There have been 15 players to hit four home runs in one game in MLB history. There have been 17 pitchers to pitch perfect games in MLB history. This might suggest, to the suggestable reader, that the unassisted triple play is the most unusual feat in MLB.
