    Rizzuto's career high was just 22, which actually was pretty good in that era for a team that did not utilize this strategy much.

    I still wonder how Stirnweiss bagged his 55, that seems like an aberration. But then again, it was wartime.

    One guy who was good for 30-plus for four years was Willie Randolph. But he never made 40.

    Because that includes 'Highlanders'. He was just looking for 'Yankees'.

    I was thinking Knoblauch when I saw this. He came up just short- 38 in his last Yankee season.

    OK, that leaves two from the Yankee era. Mike27 is on the right track -- the one guy held the club record for decades before Rickey broke it. I remember seeing it on the back of the Topps team cards.

    The other is not ancient history but not recent either.

    Without looking it up I`d add Mickey Rivers and Hal Chase but I could be wrong

    EDIT- I was right on both but somebody mentioned Chase before me

    Chapman (well done) and Kelly are two of the five I was seeking.

    Conroy and Chase date from the Highlanders era. I should have made clear that I was counting only since the team became the Yankees, but I did say franchise history, so I will stand corrected.

    Still three left from the Yankee era.

    Roberto Kelly, Early 90's.

    I cheated on this one, but Wid Conroy 1907.

    I think some guy in the 1900's had like 80 SB's too. He might have been on the same team as Conroy, I just don't feel like researching atm.

    That's three. Rickey (4x) holds the top three spots in club history; even in his "down year" with the Yankees he still swiped over 40.

    Soriano and Sax (whom I'd clean forgotten about until I researched the question) each did it twice.

    Of the remaining five, I would call two seriously difficult even to students of Yankee history. A third is difficult, but the other two are not all that hard.

    Ricky Henderson is a no brainer.

    I also know Alfonso Soriano and Steve Sax had 40+ in a season for them.
