This day in baseball: Stealing for the cycle

On July 30, 1913, catcher Ivey Wingo of the Cardinals stole second base, third, and home plate, as St. Louis routed Boston, 9-1.  Wingo stole all three bases in the same inning, completing the cycle in the bottom of the second.

    I have trouble believing a catcher stole a base, let alone three in one inning. Was it during a rain delay?

    Ivy Wingo. What a name. Maybe he was dueling with the other team’s catcher?
