This double steal maneuver will be attempted in later years by Fred Tenney (July 31, 1908), and Germany Schaefer (September 4, 1908), before being made illegal.
On August 13, 1902 — In the 6th inning of a game with the Detroit Tigers, Harry Davis of the A’s attempts a double steal with Dave Fultz, who is on third base. But Davis does not draw a throw as he goes into second, and Fultz cannot score. So, on the next pitch, he “steals” first base. The next time he steals second, he does draw a throw and Fultz scores from third, Philadelphia wins 9-0 over Detroit at Columbia Park.
