I don't really think a 60 yard dash means much in baseball terms. Fast is fast but so much in baseball is quick reflexes, reaction time, jumps on the ball, etc. Ryan Freel was much faster than Jay Bruce but Bruce probably played better defensive center field than Freel. Fast helps but it is only one small thing in making a complete ball player.
