Did you know that in 1987, San Diego Padre legend Tony Gwynn hit .370 while stealing 56 bases. It remains the only time in the past 92 years anybody hit .370 with at least 50 steals. The only other players to ever do so were George Sisler, Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker and Benny Kauff. SI.com’s Tom Verducci has a great article about “Mr. Padre”, who passed away yesterday at the age of 54.
