The feet of Ronald Acuna Jr. (26, Atlanta Braves), who is running toward the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP), are not stopping.
Acuña Junior recorded a batting average of 0.335, 24 home runs, 61 RBIs, 93 runs, 138 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.416 OPS of 0.994 in 103 games of the season until the 31st (hereinafter Korean time).
In addition, Acuna Junior added one stolen base that day. A whopping 51 (8 stolen bases). In other words, he has already joined the 20 home run-50 stolen base club.메이저놀이터
Acuña Jr. recorded his 24th home run and his 50th stolen base on the 30th of the season, and also added 1 stolen base in the game on the 31st. When the opportunity arises, run without hesitation.
As a result, Acuña Jr. succeeded in widening the gap with Esteuri Luis (24), who is second in the major league stolen bases, to eight. It is very likely that he will be the first stealer in his career.
Also, Acuna Jr. is currently on a 37 home run-80 stolen base pace. If you exert a little more strength in home runs, you can achieve 40 home runs and 80 stolen bases.
Of course, no player in the major leagues has yet reached 30 home runs and 60 stolen bases. As a result, Acuna Jr. is very likely to become the first player in major league history.
Meanwhile, the last time 80 stolen bases in a season in the major leagues was in 1988. At that time, Ricky Henderson (93) and Vince Coleman (81) achieved 80 stolen bases.
