In just his 2nd week in the majors, Cleveland's Alex Cole ties a major-league record by stealing seven bases in two games. He set the club record by swiping five bases against the Royals on August 1st.
»July 3, 1992:
Cleveland sends washout speedster Alex Cole (.206 with nine stolen bases) to the Pirates for Tony Mitchell and John Carter. For Cole, it is his 4th team in three years. He'll vacate Pittsburgh for the Rockies after the season.
