Recently a memorabilia show was conducted in Atlantic City, New Jersey called the 500 Stolen Base Club and an added feature was the limited signing of base balls by those living players (Rickey Henderson, Lou Brock, Vince Coleman & Maury Wills) who have stolen more than one-hundred (100+) bases during a season.
Did you know that between 1905 through 1928 Ty Cobb set the Major League record for the most successful career thefts of home plate? Too easy? Do you know the eleven (11) players who have successfully stolen home base twice during the same game? Check out our Record Books section to find the answer to that & countless other major league baserunning records.
Many fans know that Rickey Henderson was the first and only player with fourteen (14) seasons of more than fifty (50+) stolen bases, but did you know that Henderson's career / major league average is 48.4 stolen bases a season?
