Jackie Robinson’s first major league steal of home plate came against the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 24, 1947. The Brooklyn Dodgers would go on to win that game 4-2 over the Pirates at Forbes Field. Robinson would steal the dish a total of 19 times over the course of his career.

And Yogi went to his grave swearing Robinson was out in the famous World Series steal of home.
Poor Yogi. I’m sure he wished they had instant replay back then.
