Recognized as one of the most gifted baserunners in baseball, Lou Brock helped to revolutionize the art and science of this element of the game as he totaled 938 stolen bases during his 19-year career. A six-time All-Star selection, Brock also accumulated more than 3,000 hits to help lead the St. Louis Cardinals to three National League pennants and two World Series championships. Although his stolen-base records have been eclipsed, the National League honors each year's stolen-base leader with the Lou Brock Award.
