Rodríguez becomes first catcher to reach 20 home run/20 steal mark
Before then, no major league backstop had ever collected at least 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in one season. But in a game against the Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park, Rodríguez, then a member of the Texas Rangers, reached those marks with a month-and-a-half of the season still remaining.
