Dax McCarty is the second player to log 12,000 regular season minutes for the New York Red Bulls

Congrats, Captain. May you have many more minutes for RBNY.

Back in August, Once A Metro addressed Dax McCarty's status as one of the New York Red Bulls' all-time appearances and minutes-played leaders. He had played all-competition 13,000 minutes for RBNY in his career at that moment, and he was already the player with the most minutes for the team since 2010.

If he plays another year with the club, he is quite likely to surpass Mike Petke as the team's record holder in career games played, starts, and minutes. For now, he is mostly second only to Petke in almost all those categories.

Most recently, in the team's 4-1 against Philadelphia Union on October 18, McCarty hit a major RBNY milestone for MLS regular season minutes: he became just the second player in club history (you can guess the first) to pass 12,000 league minutes played for the team.

He left the game in the 65th minute, having contributed two assists to the rout. He has now played a total of 12,023 minutes in MLS regular season games for RBNY.

Congrats, Captain!
