Is the era of stolen bases coming in the major leagues? A player who succeeded in stealing 6 bases in 1 game appeared.
Sedani Rafaela (23) of the Double A Portland Sidogs under the Boston Red Sox was selected as the center fielder in the third match against the Somerset Patriots (under the New York Yankees) held at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine, USA on the 14th 스포츠토토(hereafter Korean time). He went 3 at bats with 2 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs, and 6 stolen bases.
After getting on base with a hit in the first inning, Rafaela succeeded in stealing second base. He then succeeded in stealing third base when Nick Cavardas walked out on a walk, adding two more at once.
In the 3rd inning, he walked from 1st out to 2nd base and created a chance to run 1st and 2nd base, then succeeded in stealing a double and added 1 more base. In the 5th at-bat, he was withdrawn due to a foul fly by the first baseman, but in the 7th inning, with no runners out, he got on base with a right-handed hit, then succeeded in stealing second and third bases in succession. Already stolen 5 bases.
Rafaela, who entered the final at-bat in the ninth inning, emerged as the lead batter and succeeded in stealing second base. After that, he succeeded in stealing 3 bases and seemed to record 7 steals in 1 game. However, it was corrected by the official scorer as indifferent stealing. Rafaela officially managed to steal 6 bases in 1 game.
In the 2023 MLB Pipeline Prospect Ranking, he is a promising prospect who ranks second in the Boston team. Raphaella, who received a high evaluation of 60 in the speed category on the 20/80 scale, set a record that is rarely seen in the major leagues.
The six stolen bases in one game is a record that only four players have achieved in major league history. In the 21st century, Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays stole six bases against Boston on May 10, 2009. Prior to Crawford, Eric Young Jr. in 1996, Otis Nixon in 1991 and Eddie Collins in 1912 recorded twice.
Even in the history of over 140 years of major league, stealing 6 bases in one game was a great record. Ricky Henderson, who holds the record for the most stolen bases (1,406), also failed to record in the major leagues.
Still, Henderson holds the record for most stolen bases in a game, stealing seven in the minor leagues in 1977. Rafaela got a chance to shrug his shoulders with a record comparable to the greatest swordsman ever.
Meanwhile, Sidogs succeeded in stealing a total of 9 bases, including Rafaela, on this day, breaking the club record for the most stolen bases in one game. He also broke the record for the most stolen bases (4) in a single game in the history of the Sidogs club.
However, the player with this record is not unfamiliar to Korean baseball fans, but it is a name that is now being forgotten. This is Jeremy Haszelbaker, who was expelled from the KIA Tigers in the 2019 KBO League after 11 games. Hazlebaker stole four bases in a game in 2012.
However, he was kicked out of the KIA with a batting average of 104 06 (6 hits in 41 bats), 2 homers, 5 RBIs, 1 steal and 18 strikeouts in 11 games. I hoped that Roger Bernardina, who led the Tigers to victory, would fill the spot, but the Korean Dream was disastrously canceled.
