The Tampa Bay Rays have been an exciting and interesting team to watch this season.
After winning their first 13 games of the season, the Rays found themselves at the top of the pack in the American League East.
As of now, they still own the best record in all of baseball at 46-19.
One of the main reasons they have been so successful is their baserunning.
The Rays have proven to be very skilled when it comes to stealing bases.
In fact, they’ve set a club record of 31 straight stolen base attempts without being caught.
That’s also the most since the Cleveland Indians stole 36 consecutive bases in 2021.

This is a unique piece of history that the Rays have been chasing as of late.
With their 31 consecutive successful stolen base attempts, they have joined some elite company.
The Rays offense has been carrying them for much of the season, but baserunning is also a very important aspect of the game.
The Rays have seemingly perfected their technique and are proving to be a threat on the basepaths.
All it takes for them to pass the 2021 Indians record is six more successful consecutive stolen base attempts.
The Rays are also on a hot streak as of late.
They have won six consecutive games and have also won seven of their previous 10.
Tampa Bay also has a 6.5 game lead over the second-place Baltimore Orioles in the AL East.
Their baserunning has been a major key to their success as of late and is helping them win games.NEXT: Rays Retain Their Perch Atop An Elite List
