The rundown: One World Series player and his attempt to steal third | Kipp’s Corner

August 17th, 2012 at Fri, 17th, 2012 at 4:00 am by Kipp Robertson

There is a lot of excitement out at Gene Lobe Fields at the Kitsap Fairgrounds.

The 13-year-old Babe Ruth League World Series is well under way, with teams continuing pool play until Aug. 20.

During the Kitsap County All-Stars’ first game against Bryant, Ark.,  Aug. 15, after the opening ceremony, Bryant player Jake East put himself in quite the pickle. This was an exciting moment that got the whole crowd riled up and one of my favorite moments so far in the world series.

Jake was looking to steal third. The young player is quick, and he had a good lead off second. The pitch was thrown. Jake was off.

Unfortunately for Jake the ball made it to third quicker than he would have liked. What followed was a game of pickle between Jake and the majority of the All-Stars. Jake scrambled between second and third multiple times before making a final attempt at returning to second. The All-Stars were just too many as they covered the base, tagging Jake out.

Breathing heavily, Jake brushed himself off and returned to the dugout. Jake would be back though, scoring one of nine runs to defeat the All-Stars that night.

Coverage of the Babe Ruth World Series continues. The All-Stars play their third game against Westfield, Mass. at 7 p.m. tonight.

Below are a few images I captured during the rundown with Jake East.
