Ben Stoper Ties a B-W Record with Four Stolen Bases Against Capital

Sophomore outfielder Ben Stoper tied a school record on Saturday when he stole four bases in the second game of the Yellow Jackets’ doubleheader sweep of Capital University at Heritage Field.

Stoper, who was three for five in the game and scored a pair of runs, singled and stole second base in each of his first three at bats. He tied the record in the sixth inning with another scamper for second after reaching base on a fielder’s choice. It was his seventh stolen base in seven tries this season.

B-W’s single-game stolen base record was set in 1991 when All-OAC outfielder Jim Anderson ’92 broke an OAC postseason record by swiping four bases in one of the Jackets’ conference tournament games.
