BRETT GARDNER ABOUT TO MAKE STOLEN BASE HISTORY
by Delia E.
The next time that Brett Gardner gets on base, he could make history with his next stolen base. Gardner already has 21 consecutive stolen bases after he was caught stealing June 18th but he only needs 1 more stolen base to tie Derek Jeter for the All-Time consecutive steals record which is set at 22. Derek Jeter set that record in his 2001 & 2002 season with the Yankees, stealing 22 consecutive bases from 7/20/01 – 6/02/02.
Also worth mentioning, Gardner is tied with Alfonso Soriano for 21st in franchise history with 121 career stolen bases. Will tomorrow’s game be the game that Brett Gardner ties the record with Jeter? We’ll have to wait and see.
