Records set this season

This was a record-breaking season for two players in The Bigs.

Austin's William Satou broke the major league stolen base record. He stole 142 in only 142 games, breaking the old record of 134 by Justin Hernandez of the now Scranton franchise in season 3. The old NL record was 122 by Rico Valdes of Montreal (now Kansas City) back in season 2.

Salt Lake City's Ruben Hernandez drove in 171 runs, breaking the National League RBI record. Vicente Romero drove in 155 for Montreal (now KC) in the inaugeral season of The Bigs, an NL record that stood until this season. Hernandez's total was the second most all-time, behind only King Winn's 182 RBIs for Nashville (now Charlotte) in season 4.
