Top Ten MLB Speedsters

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

The Top Ten

1 Rickey Henderson

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

2 Ichiro Suzuki Ichiro Suzuki Ichiro Suzuki , often referred to mononymously as Ichiro, is a Japanese former professional baseball outfielder who played 28 seasons combined in top-level professional leagues.

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

3 Lou 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.

4 Cool 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.

5 Jose Reyes

joses stolen 72 bases in a season has ichiroo

6 Jackie Robinson Jackie Robinson Jack Roosevelt Robinson was an American professional baseball player who became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era.
7 Derek Jeter Derek Jeter Derek Sanderson Jeter is an American former professional baseball shortstop, current businessman and baseball executive who is the chief executive officer and part owner of the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball.

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

8 Willie Wilson
9 Maury Wills
10 Vince Coleman

The Newcomers

? Byron Buxton

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.

The Contenders

11 Deion Sanders Deion Sanders Deion 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.
12 Jacoby 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.

13 Alfonso Soriano
14 Torii Hunter
15 Hanley Ramirez

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

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

16 Billy Hamilton

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

17 Chase Utley Chase Utley
18 Brendan 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

19 Brett 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

20 Ben Revere

How is he anything but first

21 Bartolo Colon


Is this a joke

22 Dustin Pedroia
23 Carl Crawford
24 Dave Roberts
25 Shane Victorino

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

26 Herb Washington
27 Billy Butler

Just kidding. But he did steal a base in the World Series for the 2014 Royals. - 5ToolPlayers
