Tyler Wade Impresses During Yankees vs Nationals Video)
Tyler Wade impressed many of the fans watching Thursday evening’s New York Yankees vs Washington Nationals with his expert base-running.
Wade, 25, has been with the Yankees since the 2017 season. In that time he has done some pretty impressive things, but he reached a whole new audience this week in the opening game of the shortened 2020-21 MLB season.

Max Scherzer clearly wanted no part of Tyler Wade. Understandable

Last year Tyler Wade took the extra base 83% of the time (and 71% for his career).

Last season, Wade played second base, third base, shortstop, left field and right field.
It remains to be seen how New York will utilize him this year, but this much is for certain: he is off to a great start.
