1. MLB stolen bases - Rickey Henderson

2. MLB strikeouts (pitcher) - Nolan Ryan (Unless you want batting strikeouts by a pitcher, in which case I don't know)

3. NFL passing yards - Peyton Manning

4. NFL rushing yards - Emmitt Smith

5. NFL receiving yards - Randy Moss

6. NBA points scored - Michael Jordan

7. NBA rebounds - Dennis Rodman

8. NHL goals scored - Wayne Gretzky

Sadly, 5 out of 8 of these are guesses. In the 90's, I'd have probably aced this...

Nolan Ryan

Neither of those records will be broken for a long time. It would be hard for a strikeout pitcher to last as long as Ryan did, and the stolen base is not as big a part of the game as it once was. During the steroid era a runner on first was just supposed to stand there and wait for a home run, and the stolen base became a lost art.


3. NFL passing yards

Peyton Manning

4. NFL rushing yards

Emmitt Smith

5. NFL receiving yards

Jerry Rice

6. NBA points scored

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

7. NBA rebounds

Wilt Chamberlain. There were few if any other 7-footers in the league back when Wilt played.

8. NHL goals scored

Wayne Gretzky
