Quotable!
"If you aim to steal 30 or 40 bases a year, you do it by surprising the other side. But if your goal is 50 to 100 bases, the element of surprise doesn’t matter. You go even though they know you're going to go. Then each steal becomes a contest, matching your skills against theirs."
--Lou Brock, Cardinals outfielder months before breaking stolen base record
