Did you know that Davey Lopes stole thirty-eight consecutive bases without getting caught once during his 1975 campaign, breaking a 53-year-old mark set by Max Carey ( Vince Coleman broke Lopes' record in 1989 / Stolen Bases Record Book )?

Did you know that Davey Lopes and Maury Wills are the only two players with 400-or-more stolen bases in a Dodgers ' ( Brooklyn / Los Angeles ) uniform? Mousey hung up his cleats with a franchise record 490 steals, Lopes was second all-time with 418 steals. The next closest player in franchise history swiped 335 bags - do you know who it was? [ Answer ]

Dave Lopes was a four-time consecutive All-Star ( 1978 , 1979 , 1980 , 1981 ), who received the most votes amongst every All-Star in 1980 , a two-time stolen base champion (1975 & 1976), and his career 557 stolen bases places him quite high in the Top 1,000 .

On August 24, 1974 , Davey Lopes stole five bases in a game, the first time any Dodger (from Los Angeles or Brooklyn ) in franchise history entered the Most Stolen Bases in a Game Record Book , and still the only instance in franchise history!
