Colorado rookie steals five bags.

leave a comment »

Dexter Fowler, the Colorado Rockie’s 23-year-old outfielder, snatched five bags against the San Diego Padres yesterday.

I'd be smilin'.

All of them came against righthander Chris Young who is notoriously easy to steal against because of his slow, unusual windup.

The five steals became a modern day rookie record, made even more incredible by the fact that Rickey Henderson only stole 5 bases in a contest once during his illustrious career. Lou Brock nor Tim Raines ever accomplished the feat.

Fowler’s hitting .302 on the season with 9 steals already.
