Vince Coleman did it in fewer games played. But point taken.

So Commissioner Frick, an asterisk is in order?

Keep in mind he is going to lead two separate leagues in one year in bases stolen. That can't happen too often ;).

Wahoos should have hired Lou Piniella to heave second base after the record was broken.

The Reds have the fastest runner (Hamilton) and fastest pitcher (Chapman).

Not that there's anything wrong with that. :beerme:

He is currently a SS, but there is speculation that he will eventually move to the OF.

For some perspective, the Miami Marlins lead the majors with SB as a team with 122.

From the NY Times' Bats baseball blog comes this piece on stolen bases in the majors these days and an examination of Hamilton in that different game.
