Virginia Tech Baseball’s Carson DeMartini found a way to brave the cold and steal home against the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday.
Stealing home is already one of the coolest things you can do in a baseball game, so how do you somehow make it even cooler? Well, you do so by stealing home in the midst of a snowstorm. And that’s exactly what Virginia Tech baseball’s Carson DeMartini did against the NC State Wolfpack Saturday.
The game was scoreless in the bottom of the third inning between the Hokies and the Wolfpack and the bases were loaded for Virginia Tech. DeMartini, who was sitting on third base with two outs at the time, saw the perfect opportunity to give the Hokies a lead over NC State.
All he did was wait for the Wolfpack’s catcher to toss the ball back to his pitcher and DeMartini was able to make it on home by scooting in and scoring a run.

Virginia Tech baseball: Hokies steal home vs. North Carolina State in the midst of a snowstorm
It’s just absolutely magnificent.
The Hokies and Wolfpack ended up having to sit out due to a snow delay, which sounds absolutely miserable, but at least the players weren’t on the field and had a chance to get warm.
Virginia Tech ended up winning 8-2 and got an impressive series win over NC State in the process. This win comes one day after the Hokies beat the Wolfpack 21-10, which is not a baseball score at all. The whole weekend has been odd, but it’s worked out in Virginia Tech’s favor and it seems unlikely that anyone there would complain about the situation.
