GASTONIA, NC - August 24, 2022 The Gastonia Honey Hunters continue to make history as they have broken the record for most stolen bases in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB). This achievement, along with clinching their spot in the South Division Championship, comes in only their second year as an organization.
The previous record was 265 stolen bases by the Somerset Patriots in their 2000 season in a total of 140 games. The Gastonia Honey Hunters currently hold 266 stolen bases within 110 games of the 2022 season. There are 22 regular season games remaining.
“From the very beginning of the last off-season, speed was certainly a factor of ours. It’s great to see the guys buy into playing an aggressive style of the game and break the Atlantic League’s team stolen base record,” says Mauro “Goose” Gozzo, Team Manager of the Gastonia Honey Hunters.
