Oh my God Vanderbilt Baseball just pulled off another triple steal

New, comments

That's the most bases you can steal at one time.

It's pretty rare to ever pull off a triple steal at any level of baseball beyond Little League. Tim Corbin's Vanderbilt Commodores have done it twice in the past four years.

Ethan Paul stole home while Jeren Kendall and Bryan Reynolds stole third and second base, respectively, to give Vandy an insurance run in the seventh inning of its series opener against Auburn.

Paul's sprint to home plate made it 4-2 Commodores. They went on to win the game 5-2.

For reference, here's what it looked like the last time Vanderbilt utterly demoralized a conference opponent on the basepaths.

Thursday's triple steal may have lacked the gravitas of an SEC Tournament setting, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. We tried to reach Tim Corbin for comment, but he was too busy searching for a wheelbarrow to carry his enormous...ventral striatum.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, they'll have to look Corbin and the Commodores in the eye later tonight as the teams square off in game two of a doubleheader. Friday's game was moved up in the schedule to avoid storms in the Nashville area.
