Stealing home- twice!

Probably the most famous steal of home

I don’t think I’ve ever had a real steal of home while I was at the plate… and then I had two this past week. The first one was a straight steal – right handed batter….I think he just took the pitch and stepped back away and the catcher just reached out and tagged the runner three feet in front of the plate. Easy peasy.

The 2nd one, a couple of games later, was on a suicide squeeze where the batter bunted through a high pitch. The runner put on the brakes and tried to start back to third, but the catcher jumped out right away and out the tag on.

New things are fun and outs are a beautiful thing, however we get them.
