b. ground-rule triple

Exposition Park was the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates when they played Boston in the first World Series in 1903.  A rope in the outfield was the only thing that held back the crowd of spectators.

In the four games played at Exposition Park, 17 ground-rule triples were hit.  The Boston team -- which at the time was called the Americans -- won the series five games to three.
