“The Steal” 10 Years Later

Wow. 10 years. Time flew by. And in that time, the Red Sox amassed 3 World Series titles. The first one in this run, in ’04, was a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. While that sweep was impressive, it was the historic comeback against the Yankees in the ALCS that is one of the most memorable series in Red Sox history.

And it all started thanks to one play. Dave Robert’s steal. Without it, who knows. If he is out, the Sox might have been swept. But he wasn’t out. And it was the Sox who won 4 straight to beat the Yankees.
