According to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com, Correa became the second-youngest player (20 years and 269 days old) in the past 100 years to steal three bases in a game. Hall of Famer and all-time stolen base leader Rickey Henderson was 20 years and 241 days old when he had three steals on August 23, 1979.

Correa is batting .349 (15-for-43) with three home runs, three doubles, seven RBI, and four stolen bases over his first 10 games in the majors. He’s living up to the hype thus far, if not exceeding it.
