Aby-a-Day – September 25: It’s a good year to be named Jacoby

Today Jacoby’s namesake, Jacoby Ellsbury, became a member of the 30-30 Club, having hit 30 (or more) home runs and stolen 30 (or more) bases in a single season.


Of course, we already knew he was good at stealing bases, since Jacoby the Aby is named after that particuar talent of Jacoby the ballplayer.


With Jake doing so well at the cat shows, and Jacoby Ellsbury doing so well on the field, it definitely seems to be a good year to be named Jacoby.

Edit: And…Guess who hit a two-out, three-run home run in the 14th inning to beat the Yankees tonight?
