GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Calvin College baseball player stole home to beat Albion over the weekend.

Saturday, the Knigts and Albion were tied 2-2 in the bottom of the last inning with bases loaded. Grant Van Puten was on third base.

He had a delayed steal home to earn his team the win.

It was a gutsy play, but it paid off.

Above, watch the play and hear what Van Puten said about why he decided to make the play.
