The Rockies and their baserunning history

Let’s cut to the chase: baserunning is one of the most enjoyable parts of baseball. Watching people running fast in general is exciting, even more when there’s a payoff waiting for them at the end. The decline of the stolen base across baseball as front offices attempt to reach maximum efficiency is well documented, and it is obviously a shame that we’ve mostly lost one of the best things about this wonderful sport.

On the baserunning theme, we’re going to take a look at the Rockies’ history on the basepaths: their success rate and overall value by year, the best (and worst) baserunners in team history, and so on.
