Default Trivia Time (x 3):

Honor System - no peaking.

1.) Who are the last three players with as many as 70 stolen bases in a season?

2.) Maury Wills stole104 bases in 1962 and when he led the league again the next year, who was second in the NL?

3.) Name the four players who have accumulated at least 700 At-Bats in a single season.

I think Ellsbury did it once. Not sure of the others. Assume Vince Coleman is too far back.

The ONLY two correct answers so far are Jacoby Ellsbury (70 SB in 2009) & Ichiro Suzuki (704 ABs in 2004)..


Keep Trying!

I thought of two more lead off men who stole lots of bases.
Kenny Lofton
Jose Reyes

I'll submit these two fellas for 700 ABs and most recent to have 70 SBs in a season. Come on, one of them has to check one of those boxes.

Reyes - 78 steals in 2007

Lofton's 70-SB seasons were prior ('93 & '96) to the three I have in mind.


SO, NOW WE HAVE THREE CORRECT ANSWERS:

Ellsbury & Reyes had two of the last three 70-SB seasons.

Ichiro Suzuki had 704 At-Bats in 2004.

WE STILL DON'T HAVE THE 1963 NL Stolen-Base Runner-Up.
