On this day in baseball history

2001:

Not known for being a base thief during playing days, Pittsburgh manager Lloyd McClendon steals first base when he is ejected in the seventh frame for arguing a close play in the team’s eventual 7-6, 12 inning come-from-behind victory over Milwaukee at PNC Park. “I told him (first base ump Rick Reed) he wasn’t using it, so I thought I’d take it,” explains the Bucs’ skipper after pulling the bag out of the ground and carrying it into the Pirates’ dugout.
