Jackie Robinson stole home in the 1955 World Series vs. the New York Yankees. Whitey Ford was the Yankees' pitcher, with Yogi Berra catching.
I'm pretty sure it was Jackie Robinson. Not even close Ty Cobb stole home upwards of 50 times. The first steal of home took place in the 19th century but probably will never be pinpointed.
2.He stole second base in 1st inning of Game 1 and second base in the 1st inning of Game 3.
Because hes black. Note that the person that said the previous statement is too stupid to know how to spell the simple contraction "he's." This moron is also unaware that Jackie Robinson has been dead for quite a while, meaning it is incorrect to say that "He's black" -- the only intelligent statement would be "He WAS black." Oh, and BTW, Robinson got the nickname because he was quite adept at stealing bases -- he's one of the few players to ever steal home in a World Series game.
