Cincinnati Reds' Choo Shin-soo recorded the 100th and 101st stolen bases of his career on Monday during the first inning of a game against the Milwaukee Brewers at home in the Great American Ball Park. His last stolen base came on Aug. 16 against the same club.
He failed to steal any bases for the Seattle Mariners on his debut season in Major League Baseball in 2005, when he played 10 games. His first came on Aug. 10, 2006, against the Los Angeles Angels. However, since 2009 he has stolen at least 10 bases each year.
He also posted 20-20 seasons in 2009 and 2010, meaning he also hit at least 20 homeruns both years.
Choo is likely to repeat that feat as he is already 16-16 this season. Only two MLB players have clocked 20-20 this year -- Mike Trout of the Angels with 22 homeruns and 28 stolen bases, and Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies (26-21).
