When Jacoby Ellsbury stole home against the Yankees a couple of weeks ago a little piece of me died. But I still had to give the man his due props because it’s such a rare thing to see in a baseball game.
But what’s even more rare is what Philadelphia’s Jayson Werth did last night. After reaching first base in the seventh inning, he then proceeded to steal second, third and home! Only 49 players have done that in Major League history. Only nine have done it since 1949! (The last Phillie to do it was Pete Rose in 1980.)
Big props Jayson Werth. (And thanks for stealling just a little bit of Jacoby’s thunder!)
