Baseball: Stealing the Cycle
Stealing the cycle is stealing second, third and home in the same game. Tampa Bay Devil Rays outfielder Carl Crawford achieved this trick on Wednesday night against the Boston Red Sox.
Here is Red Sox third baseman on Crawford:
"He's so fast, it's unbelievable," Lowell said. "[Tuesday] he stole third from a standstill with both hands on his knees. Most guys, they try to get momentum. He's going from a standstill. Everyone talked about Deion [Sanders] and how fast he is, but I've never seen anyone faster than [Crawford]. He just goes from a standstill [position] to full speed so quickly. Even [Tuesday], his triple, he's waltzing into third and most guys are only getting to second on that. It's impressive. God, I wish I ran like that."
