1988: 42 HR, 40 SB

Twenty-five years ago, on Sept. 23, 1988, Jose Canseco stole his 39th and 40th bases of the season and became the first professional ballplayer to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in a single season. Canseco began one of MLB's rarest and most exclusive groups with the feat, the 40-40 club, not to be confused with Jay-Z's chain of sports bars/lounges, named from the baseball term.
