Top Ten MLB Speedsters

The best fast shortstops, center fielders, and second-basemen.

The Top TenXW

1Ichiro Suzuki

Ichiro is the fastest guy out on the field! I'll be sad when he leaves, because he's the only one in the Mariner's dugout who can consistently connect with the ball and get it where there are no players... And he's the fastest outfielder on the team!

Ichiro is my favorite player but I'm sad because he is on the yankees who I hate

The reason that got me watching MLB in the first place

He isn't as fast as Billy Hamilton but he is kind of fast

Has more stolen bases than anyone else

He's the base running king. He's number 1. - Sabbath

3Lou Brock

I had the pleasure of watching Lou Brock play. He was by far the fastest player in his day. Real sweet to watch him steal a base or two. Only player I have ever seen steal home multiple times. I know there were others but I only saw Lou actually do it. Sad to hear that he has lost a leg due to complications of Diabetes. Thanks Lou for playing the game and giving me some timeless memories.

4Cool Papa Bell

Never saw him play but the stories of his speed are legendary. Satchel Paige once said of his speed that Cool Papa "could turn the light switch off and be in bed before the lights went out." He must have been something else to see.

5Jose Reyes

joses stolen 72 bases in a season has ichiroo

6Derek Jeter

Jeter is the slickest there is in the game and is the best at what he does.

The Contenders

11Deion SandersDeion Luywnn Sanders, Sr. is a former American football and former American baseball player, who works as an analyst for CBS Sports and the NFL Network.
12Jacoby Ellsbury

3 50 steal seasons now. Ichiro has 1. Jeter has never reached 40 steals. For the past 5 years Reyes hasn't gone over 40. From a steals point of view, Ellsbury beats the top 3 on this list.

13Alfonso Soriano
14Torii Hunter
15Hanley Ramirez

Hes my favorite all player evr I wanna be like him.

Hes a beast in baseball and also my favorite! - Jedi99

16Billy Hamilton

The most stolen bases should be in the top 5

Hamilton can fly like a bullet - Sabbath

17Brendan Ryan

The most underated player in the league

Must be underrated for a good reason. Many teams need a good SS but he's not used or sought after much - Billyv

18Chase Utley
19Brett Gardner

Brett Gardner has speed. Way faster than Jeter. He can field to. If he was a better batter, he'd be great.

Granderson knocks him out of the depth chart, but he's got potential

20Ben Revere

How is he anything but first
