Top Ten MLB SpeedstersThe best fast shortstops, center fielders, and second-basemen.
The Top Ten
Has the most stolen bases ever in Major League Baseball History, So good he has stolen from home 1 time
Has more stolen bases than anyone else
He's the base running king. He's number 1. - Sabbath
130 in one year? That's insane! - tribe95
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
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.
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.
joses stolen 72 bases in a season has ichiroo
Jeter is the slickest there is in the game and is the best at what he does.
He wasnt even very fast when he was young
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.
Hes my favorite all player evr I wanna be like him.
Hes a beast in baseball and also my favorite! - Jedi99
He has a hard time getting on base, but once he is, he creates havoc for the defense with his speed. Not only that, but with his speed, he catch fly balls like no other outfielder, thus he also leaves cleat marks on the outfield walls where he catches, and push off the wall throwing the ball into the infield all in one go.
The most stolen bases should be in the top 5
Hamilton can fly like a bullet - Sabbath
He should be # 1
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
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
Is this a joke
How is he anything but first
How is chase utley ahead of Shane? Utley is a smart base runner and he's fast but Shane is faster. Jimmy Rollins can fly too - Sabbath
The best is willie mcgee
Just kidding. But he did steal a base in the World Series for the 2014 Royals. - 5ToolPlayers
He is the obvious SPEEDSTER in any sport. Beat that.
He is the obvious SPEEDSTER of any sport. Beat that...WAIT! You can’t because he is faster than you.
