There’s more to stealing bases than just being fast. Talk to Carroll County head coach Jimmy Ray and he will say you also need to be aggressive and read pitchers well–two characteristics CCHS 2014 alum Jacob Wise had.
But he was also fast.
“He was zero to full speed in a couple steps,” Ray said.
More than two years after graduating, Jacob now finds himself stealing a slot in the state record books, as his 37 consecutive stolen bases from 2013-2014 is good enough for fifth on the list.
