Historic Day In Baseball History- Henderson Breaks All-Time Steals Record/ Ryan Throws 7th-No Hitter- This Day 1991

On this day in 1991 Rickey Henderson of the Oakland A’s stole his 939th base,breaking the all-time record held by Lou Brock. Then Rickey gave that ridiculous “I am the greatest of all-time” speech at third base. Henderson finished his career with a record 1406 steals, a record that may last forever unless they bring back artificial turf.  Later that night Nolan Ryan of the Texas Rangers stole Henderson’s thunder by pitching his record 7th no-hitter.
