There’s nothing like a good TOOTBLAN. They’re almost all funny in their own way. But for however many I’ve written about here at Baseball is Fun over the years, I’ve never seen one quite like this.
Last night, Indians outfielder Eddie Rosario successfully stole second base and even started towards third as the ball trickled past the shortstop. But being the conservative base runner that he is (or so he thought), Rosario played it safe and headed back towards the bag … unfortunately, he did so slowly and with his head turned towards the plate.
The Twins showed no mercy.
