1998 HEADLINE: Alex Rodriguez Joins The ’40/40 Club’

On this day in 1998, Alex Rodriguez stole his 40th base of the baseball season giving him entrance into the elite ’40/40 Club’.

Just the 3rd of 4 members of this group, Rodriguez is the only infielder in the club.

A-Rod finished the season with 42 homers and 46 steals.  And while he never eclipsed more than 28 steals in any year after, he did hit more than 42 home runs in a season six more times.

Congratulations on this elite achievement, and Happy Anniversary A-Rod!!!
