!Let me tell you about David Eckstein
"He had done everything that a lead-off man should do."
"He had gotten on base."
"He stole second base."
"He slid into third on a passed ball by the Braves catcher."
"He hit a double."
All 170cm of him (That metric twist is my favorite part.)
"What he lacks in height, he makes up for with pure ?"
"I'm not even sure of the word for it. Heart?"
Sprint for first base
Diving [for a ground ball]
Shortstop who never quits
Very large shoes
