3. Stealing home in a postseason game
Of all the moments in Randy Arozarena’s career, this one might be the most rewatchable.
Prior to game one between the Red Sox and Rays in the 2021 postseason, the most recent straight steal of home plate in a playoff game was by Javier Baez in 2016. The difference is, Randy Arozarena did not just steal home plate, but he pulled off a straight steal, something that had not been done in the postseason since Jackie Robinson in 1955 per Fangraphs.
To add to the epicness of this moment, the straight steal of home was accompanied by a solo home run hit earlier in the game. Arozarena became the first player to ever hit a homer and steal home in a single postseason game, another impressive bullet point to add to his growing resume.
