Outfielder Rickey Henderson is baseball's all-time stolen base leader, finishing the 2000 season with 1,370. He made his debut with the Oakland A's in 1979 and has since played for the Yankees, Blue Jays, Padres, Angels, Mets and Mariners, as well as returning to the A's for several more stints. From 1980 to 1986, he lead the American League in steals each year, setting a record for most consecutive titles. In 1995 he passed Lou Brock's career record of 938 stolen bases to set a new major league record. In 2001 he will almost certainly pass Babe Ruth's record of 2062 walks to become the leader in that category as well.
