Pierre, Furcal Lead 2007 Stolen Base Charts

The Dodgers finished fourth in the N.L. West Division in stolen base percentage, recording a .733 percentage, nailing 137 bases and being thrown out 50 times. Juan Pierre and Rafael Furcal put themsleves on the all-time charts with their efforts.

Juan Pierre pilfered 64 bases and moved into fifth place all time on the charts. His .801 percentage puts him in third place behind a pair of Dave's, Davey Lopes and Dave Roberts.

Lopes leads the career list with an .831 percentage (418-85); Roberts is second at .825 (118-25). Furcal trails Mariano Duncan (.800) and Delino DeShields (.781).

Stolen bases before 1898 were credited any time a runner took an extra bases and steals from 1890-97 have been excluded from these records.

Stolen base percentages were computed for the first time in the National League in 1915 and then again in 1920-25 season, but they were then dropped until 1951 when they were recorded on a continuous basis.

Jackie Robinson's career stolen base percentage is lacking the 1948 and 1950 totals, but is a sizzling .751 for the other eight years he played, a mark that would rank fifth all-time on the Dodger list.
