Should Rickey Henderson Be Worried About His Stolen Base Record?

Adam Eaton is an outfielder with the Arizona Diamondbacks who made his major league debut as a September call-up last year, batting .259 with five RBI and a pair of home runs.

And two stolen bases. Which means he's on the fast track to history, right?

Well, no, of course. Only Eaton's "pursuit" of Henderson's career stolen base record appears on the back of his rookie card in Topps' 2013 set.
