Rafael Furcal Stats

"He's (Rafael Furcal) made himself into probably the best leadoff hitter in the game. A lot of hits, a high average, high on-base percentage, and wreaking havoc on the bases, that's Raffy.'' - Atlanta Braves Teammate Chipper Jones

On August 10, 2003 , Rafael Furcal turned an unassisted triple play , the fifth by a National League player, the first to do so in an ATLANTA Braves uniform. The first player to turn in an unassisted triple play in the senior circuit ever was also a shortstop, who also played for the Braves , but the franchise was still located in Boston . Do you know who it was? [ Answer ]

Rafael Furcal stole forty-bases in 2000, his first big league season - the seventh National League player, since 1901, to steal forty or more bases during their first year, joining Quilvio Veras (56 SB in 1995), Delino DeShields (42 SB in 1990), Chris Sabo (46 SB in 1988), Vince Coleman (110 SB in 1985), Ozzie Smith (40 SB in 1978), and Gene Richards (56 SB in 1977).

Rafael Furcal finished that rookie season with a .295 batting average, scored 87 runs, flashed some serious Sportscenter Top 10 leather, and captured the Rookie of the Year , only the second National League shortstop to receive the honor, joining Alvin Dark , from 1948!

Did you know that Rafael Furcal was the first player in Los Angeles Dodgers history to string together three consecutive four-hit games ( May 13 , May 14 , May 15, 2007 ), breaking the team-record of two straight four hit games set previously by Willie Davis (1966), Manny Mota (1969), Jimmy Wynn (1974), and Steve Garvey (1976)?
