Cubs’ Ian Happ Had the Strangest Stolen Base of the MLB Season After Basically Stealing the Fielder’s Glove

Stolen bases in Major League Baseball are on the rise this year thanks to the new rules that are changing the way the game is played. 

Cubs left fielder Ian Happ had a stolen base during Monday night’s game against the A’s and this thing could go down as the strangest swipe of the season. Not only did he steal the base, but he basically stole the fielder’s glove in the process. 

Happ slid into second and appeared to be out, but then Tony Kemp’s glove got stripped away and the ump had to change his call.
