Although there have been only eight 100-stolen base seasons in baseball since 1900, Vince Coleman did it in three consecutive years. The Cardinals’ speedy outfielder stole 110 bases as a rookie in 1985 and followed up with 107 thefts in 1986 and 109 more in 1987.

My take – Truly remarkable!! Rickey Henderson is responsible for 3 more of baseball’s eight 100-stolen base seasons. We may never see another one of these again, and the fact that 2 stars from my youth are accountable for 6 of the 8 times that this has happened in the last 110 years lets me know how incredible these two players were on the base paths!
