Acuña Joins 40-40 Club with 40th Homer for Braves

The Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. achieved a rare feat in baseball history on Friday night, when he hit his 40th home run of the season to go along with his 68 stolen bases.

“I am extremely happy,” Acuña said through a translator after Atlanta’s 9-6 victory over the Washington Nationals. “Honestly, rounding the bases, I don’t know if I was more nervous or excited.”

Acuña became the fifth player in major league history to have at least 40 homers and 40 steals in the same year.

The others were Alfonso Soriano for the Nationals in 2006, Alex Rodríguez for the Seattle Mariners in 1998, Barry Bonds for the San Francisco Giants in 1996, and Jose Canseco for the Oakland Athletics in 1988.

Acuña, who is only 23 years old, has been one of the most exciting and dynamic players in the league this season. He has helped the Braves clinch their fourth consecutive NL East title and secure a spot in the postseason.
