Kolten Wong Leaves With Stolen 2nd Base from Yadier Molina!
Kolten Wong spent the first eight seasons of his MLB career with the St. Louis Cardinals. In that time he stole 88 bases and got to watch one of the greatest defensive catchers in baseball history, Yadier Molina.

CelebnSports247.com reports that on Wednesday night as Wong and the Milwaukee Brewers faced the Cardinals in St. Louis, Wong stole second off his former teammate.
What followed next, Kolten Wong literally walked away with 2nd base, the base he stole from his former teammate, Yadier Molina.
It was one of those beautiful moments where the results (Brewers 6, Cardinals 4) don’t matter, but the people playing the game do.
First, Wong is elated to have stolen a base off Molina. And Molina can’t hide his amusement either. He knows a friend got him and the two share a laugh from opposite ends of the diamond.
Then Wong says he’s going to take the base, which he does end up doing. As he walked to the locker room after the game, carrying the base, he says:
Yadi, this is mine!
Molina later signed the base, which Wong will rightfully display in his home.
