This day in baseball: Magee swipes four

On July 12, 1906, Phillies outfielder Sherry Magee established a franchise record by stealing four bases in a game against St. Louis at Robison Field. In spite of Magee’s performance, Philadelphia lost to the Cardinals, 7-6. Magee’s mark would later be matched by Garry Maddox (1978) and Jayson Werth (2009).
