On June 4 1915 — Ty Cobb steals home in the 9th inning of 3 – 0 Detroit win‚ the only steal of home that late in a game in his career. Yankee pitcher Ray Caldwell is so angry at the safe call he throws his mitt in the air and is promptly ejected by umpire Silk O’Loughlin. It is Cobb’s second steal of home while Caldwell is on the mound (the first was on May 12th‚ 1911).
