You almost never see it – Vandy did pull the same trick some four years ago – but when the triple steal works on the baseball diamond, it’s a beautiful thing.
Vanderbilt was back at it again against Auburn pitcher Justin Camp during Thursday afternoon’s SEC matchup, when baserunner Ethan Paul made a dash for home, and his two other Commodore teammates followed suit, all resulting in safe passes and a run for the trouble.
The Jet’s got a suicide lead…And there he goes! He’s stealing home! They don’t see him and I don’t believe it, he’s stealing home! … SAFE SAFE SAFE!!!
That’s good baseball right there.
