Chicago Cubs second baseman Nico Hoerner joined elite company on Tuesday's game against the White Sox, where he recorded his 30th stolen base on the year. It's not often a Cubs player reaches this milestone, in fact it's been over ten years since the last time it happened so Hoerner has accomplished something worth celebrating. Here is every Cub in the last 50 years to record 30+ stolen bases in at least one single season.

Tony Campana: 30 SB in 2012

During Tony Campana's very brief stint with the Cubs, spanning 189 games over two years, he was able to swipe a respectable 54 bags. The speedy outfielder shined in pinch-hitting/pinch running scenarios, which is why he only compiled 347 at-bats in those years. In 2012, Campana stole 30 bases, which was the last time a Cubs player reached that mark until Hoerner did on August 15.

Shawon Dunston: 30 SB in 1988

Shawon Dunston was a a mainstay in the Cubs lineup for a ten-year period from 1985-1995. During that time, the shortstop/outfielder was a two-time all-star (1988, 1990). Although the contact-hitting Dunston did not put up flashy numbers, he was a base-stealing threat in the early part of his career and he collected 146 SB with the Cubs. The most came when he was an everyday player in 1988, where he swiped 30 bags and played in 155 games played for the Cubs that year.
