Comments on: Miguel Dilone – Part 2 (1978) http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/1157 This and that about baseball stats.

He only had 8 doubles. OK, he only played about half a season. So his steal total is incredible! But still, talk about having NO power!

In the NL 1915-1916, 1920-1925, 1951-present. It does look bizarre that so many of those top numbers would all be from 1914. Of course, there was more base stealing at that time, and I think a lot of hit-and-running as well (check the Bill James book on managers on that). The 1370 caught stealings in 1914 AL (more than one per game) are far and away the most in any season they've been counted.

That suggests that a lot more ballplayers racked up the CS back then, and it also suggests that our only data from that era is from that one season (maybe even that one league in that one season) - is that right? If so, it further suggests that if we had data for all those missing years, we might find a challenger for Dilone. Dilone would then not be unique, he would just be a throwback to an earlier age.
