Betts' Speed

SDS

Mookie Betts has got to be the first player ever, with 62 speed, to steal 3 bases in a game!

SDS

He runs at the same speed as Adam Eaton and Christian Yelich. 95th fastest player in the league,

I've managed to get some steals with Yelich, it's not always guaranteed, but satisfying when he's safe.

SDS

It's pretty obvious now.

1997 Jeff Bagwell stole 3 in a game. 2nd slowest guy on his team. Only 1st baseman to have a 40/30 season I believe. Actually did it twice.

I am suppose to be the thread killer. ☣

I wonder where Astudillo fits in on the speed list:

MLB The Show RTTS Catcher: enough with the unrealistic steal attempts!

speed isn't everything though, as a few people are alluding to here. Betts' career SB % is 83.4% which is 16th all time (!) just ahead of Trea Turner who I think we can all agree is rapid.
