Virginia Tech Baseball’s Carson DeMartini found a way to brave the cold and sneak home against the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday.
Stealing home is already one of the coolest things you can do in a baseball game, so how do you make it any cooler? Well, you do that by sneaking your way home in the middle of a snowstorm. And that’s exactly what Virginia Tech Baseball’s Carson DeMartini did Saturday against the NC State Wolfpack.
The game was scoreless by the end of the third inning between the Hokies and the Wolfpack, and the bases were loaded for Virginia Tech. DeMartini, who was at third base with two outs at the time, saw the perfect opportunity to give the Hokies an advantage over NC State.
All he did was wait for the wolfpack’s catcher to toss the ball back to his pitcher, and DeMartini was able to make it home by shooting in and hitting a run.

Virginia Tech Baseball: Hokies steal home amid snowstorm against North Carolina state
It’s just absolutely gorgeous.
The Hokies and Wolfpack ended up sitting out due to a snow delay, which sounds absolutely miserable, but at least the players were off the field and had a chance to warm up.
Virginia Tech ended up winning 8-2 in an impressive series of wins over NC State. That win comes a day after the Hokies defeated the Wolfpack 21-10, which is not a baseball result at all. The whole weekend has been strange, but things have worked out in Virginia Tech’s favor and it seems unlikely that anyone there would complain about the situation.
