Andrew Velasquez lost his publicity as a minor league baseball player when he lost his 72 consecutive base runs streak on Thursday, July 17, 2014. The on-base record of 71 straight games was held by Kevin Millar (1997) and Kevin Youkilis (2003).
Mr.Velasquez began the streak on April 22, 2014. He was aiming for 75 consecutive base runs, but stopped at 72, unfortunately. The Major League on-base record is 84 straight games, and Mr. Velasquez was as close to breaking that record as ever.
Velasquez has worked hard for the title as “the man who broke the record.” As a minor league baseball player, this would have been a very big accomplishment. Maybe he will try to re-earn his fame next time around.
