The players in this quiz were all noted base thieves for at least part of their careers. But, what seasonal accomplishment distinguishes them from among all other players since 1901?

Hint: Billy Hamilton is on pace to join this group this season.

      A few more players than these have done that.

      Stolen bases are involved, of course, as is success rate, but in an indirect way.

    I give up – these guys are all over the place and I can’t seem to find a common thread other than base-stealing (obviously) and success rate.

      The answer is that they are the only players to post a qualified season averaging one stolen base for every three times reaching base, while also getting caught stealing fewer than 20 times. Here are those seasons.

    I messed with PA but should have known to try TOB. With Rickey in the mix, I thought that would be a problem, but I guess not.
