a classic play at the plate

game 1 of the 1955 world series. jackie robinson steals home. yogi jumps up and down in protest. the dodgers lost the game, but won the series.

how did i miss 2007 upper deck masterpieces?

i can picture the footage of jackie dancing down the line from third waiting to make a break for it. i have to say, though, i don't think i have ever seen a steal of home in person, even on the front end of a double steal.

to this day, yogi maintains he tagged jackie out. in fact, i think yogi will sign pictures of this play with the tagline "he was out".

Yeah, well, Steve Garvey was safe at home in Game 1 of the 1977 World Series. Let it go, Yogi.
