The First 40-40-40 Man

In the 2006 Major League baseball season, one of the players achieved something that no other player ever has. Alfonso Soriano of the Washington Nationals became the first player ever to hit 40 home runs, 40 doubles and steal 40 bases in one season. There have 40-40 players in the past, quite a few have hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases, but never also achieving the 40 doubles as well.

I know some Cubs fans that are going to be very happy to hear this. Mr. Soriano went to the Cubs with a multi-million dollar eight year contract. He should be a good match for the great fans of Wrigley.
