Executing a triple steal is a rare feat in baseball, unless, of course, you’re the Vanderbilt Commodores, who seem to have no problem pulling off the difficult triple steal. Last year they did the near impossible against Florida in the SEC tourney, and this year they managed to make Lipscomb fall prey to the triple steal in the 4th inning of their 4-1 win this past Tuesday.
Here’s a free bit of advice to any of the Commodores’ future opponents that may be reading this (Ed. note: is there a percentage less than zero?)—if Vandy loads the bases at any time during the game, be on the lookout for the triple steal. They have to be cocky now that they’ve done it successfully two years in a row, so chances are they’re going to keep trying it until they get caught. If your team falls victim to the Vanderbilt triple steal, then you only have yourselves to blame.
