who stole lots of bases? (answered)

Postby ukrneal » Wed Jul 07, 2004 6:04 am

Most of us know that Rickey Henderson (a right handed hitter) has stolen the most bases in baseball history. What you may not know is that most of the top baseball stealers were either lefties or switch hitters.

Since 1900, what right-handed batter has stolen the next highest number of bases (career) after Rickey?

Great guess. I think he was third or fourth of all righties if I remember correctly. So incorrect.

Arlie Latham, with 739 SB, has the second most SB for a Righty. He is 8th Overall in Career SB.

Followed by
3.) Honus Wagner, 10th overall
4.) Bert Campaneris, 14th overall
5.) Hugh Duffy, 21st overall<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by ukrneal on Thu Jul 08, 2004 2:06 am EST.</span>

In this case Honus Wagner was the answer as Arlie Latham had his SB pre-1900.

I missed the Pre-1900 part, Sorry.

Yes, but shouldn't you disregard Wagner's 121 stolen bases that occurred before 1901? That would make Campaneris the correct answer.

Utterchaos - Hmm, actually you are right. I had a slightly different question in mind than I asked. But accroding to the question, Burt Campenaris should be the correct answer.

Is there a way to change that?

Thanks for catching it.
