For Father's Day, the Oakland Athletics invited a...

WATCH: Oakland A's Stephen Vogt Survives Epic Collision at the Plate With Tampa Bay Rays Steven Souza Jr.

MLB decided a season or two ago that they did not like guys trying to run over catchers at the plate. Yeah, the play does kind of scream injury for the catchers, but what is a base runner supposed to do when he fails to beat the ball home? Turn around and run back to third only to be nabbed in a run down? No! He has to run over the catcher.The play has not been totally banned so...

You’ll hear it every time he steps to the plate in Oakland, a slow, building chant. If Stephen Vogt lets the at-bat go long enough, or the moment is big enough, it can be deafening: “I believe in Stephen Vogt.

Catching Up With: Oakland A’s Catcher Stephen Vogt

Stephen Vogt didn’t get his first taste of life in the majors until the age of 27, when he made it into 18 games for Tampa Bay. The A’s acquired him at the start of last season and called him up to the big club from Sacramento midway through the year.
