  • Top 25 List - Most Games with a HR and SB

    Here's interesting one. These guys all had to have a pretty good combination of power and speed. We are looking for top 25 players to hit a home run and steal a base in the same game the most times in their careers. The database I used only goes back to 1916, and all the players on this list have played within the past 50 years.

    1 Barry Bonds 102
    2 Rickey Henderson 87
    3 Alex Rodriguez 64
    4 Bobby Bonds 61
    5 Joe Morgan 60
    6 Willie Mays 58
    7 Cesar Cedeno 48
    8 Carlos Beltran 44
    9 Bobby Abreu 43
    t10 Larry Walker 42
    t10 Tim Raines 42
    t10 Jeff Bagwell 42
    13 Darryl Strawberry 40
    t14 Alfonso Soriano 39
    t14 Kirk Gibson 39
    t14 Jose Canseco 39
    t17 Gary Sheffield 38
    t17 Andre Dawson 38
    t17 Hank Aaron 38
    t20 Ron Gant 37
    t20 Eric Davis 37
    t22 Frank Robinson 36
    t22 Paul Molitor 36
    t22 Mike Cameron 36
    25 Ryne Sandberg 34

      Jim Edmonds wasn't a great guess. He only had 67 SB in his career and never had more than 10 in a season. The rest are all correct :-)

          Cedeno is correct. Canseco was guessed by Gee Walker and is also correct.

                      Gotta try the alliteration:

                      Mickey Mantle, maybe?

                        How about Bobby Bonds? Or Reggie Sanders?

                              I'll go with some 30/30 guys:

                              Howard Johnson
                              Sammy Sosa

                              and a long shot
                              Dave Parker

                              surely with over 100 HR Lou Brock is on the list
