Minor-league baseball team wins on walk-off steal of home

Booker, an outfielder for the Class A team in the Carolina League*, made a bold move during the Dash’s game Thursday night against the Carolina Mudcats.


The Dash, an affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, had the bases loaded with two outs in the 10th inning when Booker decided he’d try to win the game on a straight steal of home.

Big fun. I love baseball.

Great. I was at a Carolina league game last night. Wish it had been that one.

I am surprised that "Dashed home" wasn't used.

This is great, except all team names should be plural. By law.

That was pretty great (and I'll co-sign #3). The thing I loved about it was watching the video it looks like not just an exciting play but a pretty smart one. He seems to have gotten a good read on the pitcher and broken at a great time. It didn't look like a "oh let's see what happens here" but a calculated gamble.

A move forever known among Cardinal fans as "a Brummer."

A tenth inning? Terrible. Hopefully Manfred can end things like this by having a runner at second in the late innings to prevent fans from having to stay at a baseball game too long.

Normally I'd agree, but I can't really complain about a team named after my favorite punctuation mark.

No love for the Bartolo Colons?

That would fulfill the plural law. The objectionable version would be the Bartolo Colon, if for no other reason than think of the logo.

The Bartolo Colons would be one team that everybody knows about, but there would also be a secret side team.

Rainbow Dash would be so proud.

Mine is the underscore. No wait, that doesn't work so well.

Didn't Javy Baez have a stint with the Hashtags?

I'll see myself out.

There's nothing better than the sight of an umlaut in the morning. Throw in some bacon and OJ and you've got yourself a great morning.

Shouldn't Michael Morse play for the Dash?
