My buddy Adam in Maine sent me this morning a very different angle, courtesy of YouTube, of the Dave Roberts steal of second in Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, as taken by a fan in the either the bleachers or the rightfield grandstand of Fenway Park. It is very short, just 20 seconds.
But it was 20 seconds that changed a franchise, as well as a rivalry, forever.
I especially love the fan reaction after the stolen base. Just priceless.
Since today is the first day of spring, and the baseball season is just less than two weeks off, I thought you all might like to enjoy the greatest steal in baseball history from another perspective.
My thanks to Adam.
But especially, my thanks to Dave Roberts. God bless him.
