Daniel Vogelbach has played for the Seattle Mariners, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and New York Mets over his seven year big league career. During this time he has never stolen a base. With the addition of larger bases this year, Major League Baseball released a hilarious promotional video for the new 2023 changes that features the idea of him stealing a base despite New York Mets manager Buck Showalter clearly thinking it’s a bad idea.

This year the bases in Major League ball games will be 18 inches. They previously were 15 inches. The main thought regarding this change is that it would improve player safety and decrease injuries near the bases. Another thought is that it in conjunction with the pitch clock that stolen base totals will increase.

This is so freaking funny

The cut to Vogelbach giving a “watch what’s about to happen with this brilliant idea thumbs up” ….funny producing. That’s what made me laugh.
