In baseball, it’s not often that a home run hitter is also a good stealer.

Twenty home runs and 20 stolen bases in a season is considered an impressive feat. That’s the 20-20 club. 먹튀검증

It’s even harder to join the 30-30 club. It’s really hard to join the 40-40 club.

Only four players in Major League Baseball history have joined the 40-40 club. Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, Alex Rodriguez, and Alfonso Soriano. Soriano was the last to do so in 2006.

There are none in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), and the only one in the KBO was Eric Thames in 2015 with 47 home runs and 40 doubles.

In the MLB, there is a player who is 17 years away from achieving this feat. Ronaldo Acuña (Atlanta Braves).

As of Aug. 28, the right fielder has 11 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 51 games for 51 teams. At this rate, he’s on pace to hit 35 homers and steal 70 bases, according to

That’s five homers short of joining the 40-40 club. However, 40 homers is still possible with a late-season surge.

Acuña narrowly missed joining the 40-40 club in 2019 with 41 home runs and 37 stolen bases. This year, he should easily surpass 40 steals, but home runs will be a problem.

Meanwhile, there have been 43 players in MLB history to join the 30-30 club, and they’ve done so 65 times. Bonds has done it five times.
