On April 10, former Ithaca College baseball All-American and current Arizona Diamondback Tim Locastro ’14 made Major League Baseball history when he stole his 28th consecutive base to start his career without being caught.
His latest stolen base broke the previous record held by Hall of Famer Tim Raines. While Locastro still has a ways to go before he has a plaque hanging in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, his game-worn cleats will be displayed in the museum.
Locastro, who is one of the fastest players in the league, stole the record-breaking base against the Cincinnati Reds in the 6th inning of the Diamondbacks’s 8-3 victory. He also had four hits in the game.
