On September 6, 2016 Jose Reyes hit a home run and stole a base in the same game. The next day (September 7, 2016) he repeated the feat.

How many times has this been accomplished in the past, by what players?

3

Since 1913, this has happened 132 times according to Baseball Reference.

From 2006 to 2016, this has happened 17 times. The criteria I used was "Longest Streak with HR>=1, SB>=1 From 2006 to 2016."

Because I do not have a subscription to Baseball Reference, only 8 names came up on this list. This list is incomplete.

  • 2006 - Ichiro Suzuki
  • 2006 - Alfonso Soriano
  • 2007 - Alex Rios
  • 2007 - Rickie Weeks
  • 2008 - Hanley Ramirez
  • 2008 - Milton Bradley
  • 2009 - Mark Reynolds
  • 2010 - Ryan Braun
  • more...

For previous years:

17 times between 2000-2005. (There was a player with back-to-back-to-back games with a home run and stolen base during this time).

18 times between 1993-1999.

15 times between 1987-1992.

19 times between 1980-1986.

18 times between 1970-1979.

14 times between 1950-1969.

Twice between 1930-1949.

12 times between 1913-1929.

  • Thanks! Trying to search on there without paying, it looks like someone might have done it 3 games in a row after 1995, but the site is only displaying the 10th ranked and above, not the top ranked which appears to be a '3'. I thought it would be a more unusual feat but apparently it happens on average more than once per season. – user16081 Sep 9 '16 at 0:01
