    It's not a given that he leads the California league, Rico Noel has 9 in his last 10 games - now at 82 or 22 short of Billy with 19 games to go.

    Top of the 1st Inning- Billy hit a single then went on to steal a base.

    Score:
    Pensacola- 0
    Mobile- 0

    Two to tie, three to break. Coleman had 145. Hamilton currently has 143.

    Wow. He stole three before Redszone could post a picture of Zach Cozart or Fred Hutchison. That's pretty hard to do as RZ is lightning quick on these sorts of things. That Billy Hamilton must be fast!

    Congratulations Billy...now rest and save the wear and tear on your body of stealing bases until you get to the show.

    Um. Whoops.....

    Absolutely amazing. 147 steals and the season isn't even over yet. And he's hitting well too. Notice his OPS is exactly the same at Bakersfield and Pensacola (.852). Folks, that's getting it done and then some. Wow.

    LOL Yeah I wasn't sure it would happen either. Neat, though.

    I am still wondering if any player has ever led 2 minor leagues in a single season in a counting stat.
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
