    I am still wondering if any player has ever led 2 minor leagues in a single season in a counting stat.
    There is a chance he could get caught in the California league. Rico Noel has 85 steals. With 9 games left he needs 19 steals to match Hamilton for the league lead. Unlikely but possible if he guns for it.

    How unusual would it be for two guys to steal over 100 in the same season?

    Of course he can be caught. Someone pointed that out before. But that wasn't what I was asking. To clarify, I was wondering, IF Hamilton isn't caught, would that be the first time someone led two minor leagues in a counting stat in the same season?
    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.

    I wonder if the last time it happened was when Coleman broke the record and Donnel Nixon stole 144.

    Nice tidbit there Doug. Never heard of him but now I see that he's the brother of Otis Nixon and that he had a MLB career of a little over 200 games and only stole 47 bases
