Vanderbilt Commodores pull off rare triple steal
There are a handful of extremely rare feats in baseball. A perfect game, the triple play, a 20-strikeout performance. And then there’s the triple steal, which is incredibly difficult (and risky) to pull off.
The Vanderbilt Commodores did it on Thursday night, though, and it’s becoming something they’re known for. With the bases loaded, Ethan Paul took off for home. He was safe by a good amount at home, which made the trailing runners’ jobs easy. They could have walked into their respective bases.
While this almost never happens in MLB — the last time was in 2008, and the instance before that was in 1987 — the Commodores have made somewhat of a habit out of pulling off triple steals. They last did it in 2013, and one year before that, too.
