Proof That Twins Steal More Than Others

On this day in 1969 Rod Carew and Cesar Tovar stole five bases between them in an inning.  What?  Tovar got two and then Carew stole second third and home.

Carew stole home seven times in the 1969 season, one shy of Ty Cobb's record.

Stolen bases are certainly happening less than in 1969, so these numbers are impressive.

Ty Cobb leads with 54 career steals of home.  Here are the other Kellogg's card players on the all-time list.

#4.  Honus Wagner - 27

#8.  George Sisler - 20

#11. Tris Speaker - 18

#14. Rod Carew - 17

#18. Lou Gehrig - 15

#32. Babe Ruth - 10

#32. Paul Molitor - 10

Gehrig?  He only stole 102 bases in his career and he was caught 100 times.  Now I want to know who got caught stealing home the most.
