2008 World Series

In case some of you are unaware, and judging by the TV ratings, most of you are... the 2008 World Series is in full swing.
Philadelphia currently leads Tampa in game 4, 6-2 in the 7th inning. Eric Hinske of the Rays just hit a pinch hit homer in his first World Series at bat. That's a good story right there.
Game three's hero was an unlikely one. Light hitting Philly catcher, Carlos Ruiz. A bases loaded infield single in the bottom of the 9th. At 1 am. In the morning. That's "0 dark hundred" in military time.
The TV ratings are falling faster than the value of the Canadian dollar.

This particular Moments and Milestone was when Carlos became the first Phillies catcher to steal home in over 25 years.... anybody tell me who was the last one before Carlos???
