Updates to Single-Season and Career Records

Been a couple of seasons since we updated all the records, and there have been a few changes of note.

The only single-season record set last year was Roger Lawson's 53 saves, which tied the mark originally set in Season 14 by Syracuse's P.T. Lincoln.

On the career records front, Skip Leon finally packed it in last season, falling 51 hits short of 3000. Among active players, Matt Wallace (2628), William Pierce (2622), and Rafael Brogna (2523) are in hailing distance of 3000, but it's 33 year-old Victor Morales (currently 2581 hits) who seems a lock to be Belle's first member of the 3000 club.

Skip did manage to sneak past the 2000 RBI mark, finishing at 2020.

Joe Rivera stroked 24 homers last year to become the "Babe Ruth of Belle" - first to reach 700 homers (currently on 710).

Victor Morales scored 125 runs last year to extend his career mark to 1855. With probably another 6 productive seasons ahead of him, he could well surpass 2500 runs scored by the time he's done.

Neifi Foster swiped 65 bags last year to move past Lon Andrews on the career stolen base list - the new mark is 658.
