In fact, Patterson wasn't even the Red with the most times leading off that season. It was Jerry Hairston (44), followed by Patterson (32), Dickerson (25), Bruce (22) and Freel (20), rounded out by five other players in the remaining 19 games.
It really is very simple to verify these things. These perceptions are clouded for many by their absolute disdain for anything Dusty Baker did while manager of the Reds.
[I see that Edabbs44 beat me to the punch, pointing out that Patterson didn't lead off anywhere near as much as folks say]
