On September 28, 1958 — On the last day of the season, Gus Triandos steals his first and only base of his 13-year major league career, swiping the bag off off rookie pitcher Zach Monroe and third-string catcher Darrell Johnson, who are playing to give the Yankees regular battery a day off before the upcoming Fall Classic. The 28 year-old Orioles backstop will play a record 1,206 games consecutive games without ever being caught stealing a base.
