Perhaps the most surprising aspect of his game is on the basepaths. No, heís not much of a basestealer. In 2006 he stole 19 bases in 117 games. Since then, heís stolen 30 in nearly 500 games spanning multiple levels. Thatís not the surprising part. Instead itís Bruceís ability to take the extra base. Baseball-Reference tracks this measure and the definition of what constitutes and extra base is pretty simple: itís any advancement where the lead runner isnít forced by the player behind him. Say Bruce is on first base when a single is hit into right field, if Bruce takes second and third during the run of play, heís credited with an extra base taken.
