See CC steal

Carl Crawford reflected on the significance of stealing his 400th base Saturday night. He is one of seven players to reach 400 before his 29th birthday, joining the likes of Rickey Henderson and Ty Cobb. "It's always a good feeling when you reach a milestone," said Crawford, who turns 29 on Thursday. "When you're in the same conversation as Ty Cobb and Rickey Henderson and guys like that, it's definitely a big honor."

Carl Crawford avoids Derek Jeter’s tag for his 400th stolen base. Only 6 other players reached 400 before age 29: Cesar Cedeno, Ty Cobb, Vince Coleman, Eddie Collins, Rickey Henderson & Tim Raines.
