No one on the planet is playing better baseball right now than Atlanta Braves superstar Ronald Acuna Jr. Through the first 13 games of the season, the 23-year-old phenom has smacked seven home runs, driven in 14 runs and scored 16 times himself. He’s hitting a preposterous .442 over that span, and has peppered in three stolen bases for good measure. Granted, it’s still quite early in the 2021 season, but if Acuna keeps performing at or even near this level, this might be the year he overtakes Mike Trout as the world’s best player.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Acuna already has one 30/30 campaign on his resume, and with his hot start, he could become just the fifth player ever to record a 40/40 season. Since the 2000 MLB season, a player has totaled 30 or more home runs and stolen bases in the same season on 27 occasions. So with that in mind, how many of the 27 can you name in five minutes?
