51 of 52 in Stolen Bases - More than Power

Rate this Entry
I was just discussung this with friends in regards to - Adam Brett Walker II:

Through college and his professional career - he is 51 for 52 in stolen bases.

College - 40 for 41 SBs (Division 1 Jacksonville University)
Professional - 4 for 4 (Elizabethton 2012 regular season) / 3 for 3 (6 playoff games) / 4 for 4 (Cedar Rapids 2013 regular season).

That's a 98% success rate in Stolen Bases over the last 5 years. That's right: I said 98% success rate . Let this man Run

Not just a power hitter (.264 ISO in 2013 and 51 for 52 in SBs over 5 years) - High Baseball IQ - WINNER -- Let this man Run. He would have to get thrown out an awful lot to bring down his success rate. 100% as a pro

    Sadly, they just aren't very bright.
    If he'd stop hitting those home runs he would have more opportunities to steal bases.

    Who the hell is coaching that team? Do I have to do everything?
