Major League Record Book: Career Stolen Bases

The stolen base seems to be on the wane in the major leagues… I’m sure there’s a way to look this up…. but the truth is that on this list below, a grand total of 20 bases were swiped in 2018. Let’s take a look anyway:

2006-2018
1 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 128
2 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 67
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 55
4 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 31
5 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 22
6 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 14
7 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 9
8 Rico Noel Covington ’08 5
Joey Butler New Market ’06 5
10 Brian Bocock Luray ’04 4
Blake Tekotte Woodstock ’06 4
Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 4

There are no additions and no changes. Interesting that Jason Kipnis has just about doubled up Dan Murphy.

All-Time
1 Juan Pierre Harrisonburg ’97 614
2 Steve Finley Harrisonburg ’85 320
3 Reggie Sanders Winchester ’87 304
4 Brett Gardner New Market ’03-04 257
5 Gene Richards Harrisonburg 247
Darren Lewis Harrisonburg 247
7 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 128
8 David Eckstein Harrisonburg ’95-6 123
9 Billy Sample Harrisonburg ’74-6 98
10 Tom Brookens Waynesboro 86
11 Cliff Pennington Harrisonburg ’03 84
12 Adam Everett Winchester ’96 67
Dan Murphy Luray ’05 67
14 Pat Kelly Staunton 61
15 John Kruk New Market ’81 58
16 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 55
17 Emil Brown Waynesboro ’94 52
18 Doug Dascenzo Front Royal 49
19 Brandon Inge Waynesboro ’96 45
20 Denny Walling Waynesboro ’75 44

Additions: None

Changes:

  • Brett Gardner stole 16 bases in 2018, and passed Darren Lewis and Gene Richards to move into 4th place
  • Jason Kipnis stole 7 bases, and passed David Eckstein into 7th
  • Dan Murphy stole 3 bases, and moved into a tie for 12th with Adam Everett
  • Jon Jay stole 4 bases, and passed Emil Brown into 17th place

So Kipnis has just about doubled up the competition; well, so has Juan Pierre!
