the art of stealing bases
i love the stolen base!
Willie Wilson on pitchers: "There were some easy guys to steal off. The easiest was Ron Guidry. When he threw home, he ducked his chin because he was a power pitcher. He was really easy to steal off, but the problem was, you had to get on!"
Those old Yankees-Royals matchups were a lot of fun.
