VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Many people on Twitter are saying that Jose Bautista’s stolen base on June 11th vs the Mariners was the best stolen base ever. Do I agree?? Well, it was pretty awesome and definitely ranks near the number one spot. After getting walked down to first base, Jose Bautista just strolled on over to 2nd as there was nobody there, stealing the base. Greatest of all time though? Take a look for yourself.
