In baseball, when a hitter receives a walk and steals second base immediately after touching first. Such a play is quite rare, because the runner will almost always be thrown out by the defense before he reaches second. Named after Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Marco Scutaro, who infamously executed the play against Joe Blanton of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Last Sunday, Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-4 with two doubles, one home run, one walk, and one Scutaro.
