Your mind has a way of putting limitations on your goals. When you persevere, you develop character. Nobody knows their ceiling.

In a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on 8 August 1998, Twins DH Paul Molitor goes 5-for-5 with a stolen base. With this performance, he becomes just the fifth player in Major League history to collect 3,000 hits and 500 steals in his career. The other four players? Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Eddie Collins, and Lou Brock. Pretty good company!
