Kelly Shoppach Earned His First Stolen Base With A Very Weird Slide Into Second

Red Sox catcher Kelly Shoppach has played eight major league seasons for three teams, never once even attempting to steal base. That's zero attempts in 338 times he's stood on first base, by our count. That changed today when Shoppach took off for second on a delayed attempt in the sixth inning of Boston's home opener against Tampa Bay, then tried to slide in a manner Rays broadcaster Dewayne Staats could only describe as "Bugs Bunny." We think it's more "Freaky Friday." [Sun Sports]
