The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 1,406 Stolen bases

When it came to stealing bases and putting yourself in the ideal position to score, Rickey Henderson is head and shoulders better than anyone.

There were plenty of great Hall of Fame players who stole bases early and often. Tim Raines ended his career with 808, while Ty Cobb blew past him by wrapping up his time in the majors with 897. Billy Hamilton and Lou Brock were even better, pushing past the 900 marks and ending their careers with close to 1,000 stolen bases.

While those numbers are great, they aren’t even close to Rickey Henderson. Over the course of a quarter century in the game, Henderson racked up 1,406 stolen bases. The 2009 Hall of Famer led the league in stolen bases a dozen times and registered triple digits in stolen bases for a season three times.

In all honesty, they should probably stop keeping track of stolen bases at this point. Henderson’s biggest competition comes from Dee Stranger-Gordon, who’s still an active player. He’s still a long way from catching up to Henderson as he’s racked up 333 stolen bases throughout his career.

Whether it’s decades from now or even centuries, we have a feeling this record isn’t going to get broken, ever.
