Cal Softball Video: Pac-12's Best On What Makes a Good Base Stealer

Senior shortstop from Monte Vista High was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection a year ago

Considering she hasn't been thrown out stealing so far this season and is 58 for 59 over the past two years, we figured Cal senior Lindsay Rood would be a good source for theories on what makes an effective base stealer.

Rood tells us she has never watched old film of famous Major League base stealers such as Rickey Henderson, but added, "Maybe I should."

Given her track record, we're thinking whatever she's doing right now seems to be working fine.
