OTD May 1 - Rickey Henderson and Nolan Ryan
12 / 51

1991: Rickey Henderson of the Oakland Athletics steals the 939th base of his career, making him the major-league all-time leader. However, his accomplishment was overshadowed later that night by Texas Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan, who pitched his seventh career no-hitter, breaking his own record. Both Henderson and Ryan still hold the career records for steals and no-hitters, respectively.
