Dave Roberts, 2 of 3

David Ray Roberts was just named the Padres 1st base coach for the coming season.  He is returning to San Diego where he played in 2005-2006.  He has also played for the Indians, Dodgers and Giants.  He is best known for a play in the 2004 ALCS for the Red Sox when he stole a base against the Yankees.  The play has become known simply as 'The Steal" and is considered one of the most important plays in Red Sox history.  The amazing thing is that he only played in 45 games for the Red Sox in 2004.  Dave has survived a health crisis in the last couple of years.  I got this card through the mail.
