Jacoby Ellsbury Steals Home

On April 26, 2009, in the bottom of the 5th inning against the New York Yankees, Jacoby Ellsbury stole home. Andy Pettitte was on the mound, Jorge Posada behind the dish, and left handed batter J.D. Drew was at the plate. Ellsbury had a huge lead, and as Pettitte wound up, Ellsbury took off and did it! Pettitte had a look on his face like he was a deer caught in the headlights.

MLB.com is highlighting the top plays of the 2009 campaign and this play is on the list. I wish I could embed it in this post, but you're just going to have to click on this link here, and enjoy Jon Miller calling the play! So appropriate that it was against the Yanks at Fenway!
