You might have noticed that the Los Angeles Dodgers are in the World Series. You might have even witnessed game five of the World Series when Manuel Margot of the Tampa Bays Rays was caught trying to steal home. Long ago, back when the Dodgers were in a completely different city on a different coast, they were a dynasty always battling against the cross town rivals in the New York Yankees. 1955 was such a battle. Though the Dodgers would lose game one, they managed to make history. They also managed to win the series in seven games for their first ever World Series title.
The last successful straight steal of home in the #WorldSeries was by @Dodgers' Jackie Robinson in 1955 — although Yogi Berra spent the rest of his life arguing the call!
