What's the record for consecutive times caught stealing?

Postby Splendid61 » Sat Aug 26, 2006 7:23 am

Juan Rivera is 0 for his last 12 stolen base attempts, dating back to May 2005.

Anybody know what the record is?

Can't seem to find a record listing, but a good bet for looking might be Pat Duncan. From 1921-22 he tried to steal 65 times and was caught 46 times.

Nope, not Duncan. I've checked quite a few of the likely suspects, and the tops I can find is Ben Ogilvie with 8. There are a couple where retro sheet doesn't have the daily player info, so it would take a while to search day by day. Charlie Jamieson from 1928-1929 had 5 SBs and 25 caught stealing. That's a possibility.

I'm not sure about consecutive CS', but Rickey has the record for most in a season with 42 in 1982.

Considering he was successful 130 times that season I doubt he holds the record.

I'm looking too (on Retrosheet) and I can't find anything that comes close to Rivera's yet.

Closest I've found so far are Jose Offerman, 2001 and Oscar Robles 2005 with 8.

Found one better. Pete Runnels for the Washington started his career with a string of 13 consecutive caught stealing (0-3 in 1951 and 0-10 in 1952). He was 3-7 in 1953, but I don't know the order because retrosheet does not have the dailies. So, Rivera is at least one from the record.

Another...Eddie Yost for the 1957-58 Washington Senators (Hmm, I'm sensing a theme) was caught 13 straight times. I know that one's no longer than that, because retro sheet has the daily. He stole a base April 30th, 1957, then was caught 11 consecutive times in 1957. He was caught twice more before stealing one on July 23, 1958

Record is at least 14. Chris Cannizzaro from 1964 to 1970 was caught 14 in a row.

Here's a list as complete as I can make since 1920:

Chris Cannizzaro 14, 1964-1970
Pete Runnels 13 (could be longer), 1951-52
Eddie Yost 13, 1957-58
Zeb Terry 12 (could be longer), 1920-21
Jay Buhner 12 1990-93


Some other possibilities:
Charlie Jamieson, 5 SB in 30 attempts from 1928-29
Joe Sewell, 3 SB in 19 attempts in 1927
Red Kress, 6 SB in 28 attempts in 1930-31
Bill Knickerbocker, 7 SB in 33 attempts in 1935-36
Eddie Mayo 4 SB in 20 attempts in 1947-48.
Larry Gardner 3 SB in 23 attempts in 1920
Hod Ford 1 SB in 13 attempts in 1924-25
Bobby Doerr 6 SB in 26 attempts in 1938-39

So, Juan could very well be 3 away from breaking the record.
