If you're like me, and didn't get the chance to watch the game last night, you probably didn't believe it either when you read that in the game recaps this morning. But sure enough, he actually did do it. Here's visual proof:
Is that the most improbable steal of home ever? I know it took some brain farts on the part of A-Rod and the A's to make it possible, which makes it a bit of a fugazi steal of home, but this is still Mark Teixeira we're talking about. He of the 16 career stolen bases and 5 times caught stealing . Dude can run the bags with the best of them but he isn't exactly Lou Brock in his prime.
Cue the "you just can't predict baseball, Suzyn" sound clip from Sterling on that one.
