2009 Chachi #62 Stolen Base Leaders - Jimmy Rollins & Shane Victorino

All credit goes to Phillies coach Davey Lopes for improving the team's running game over the past several years. For the fifth year in a row, Jimmy Rollins stole over 30 bases. Additionally, Jimmy joined Chase Utley (23) and Jayson Werth (20) in the 20-20 club (at least 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases) - the first time more than one Phillie has reached those marks in the same season. Four of Jayson's stolen bases came in the same game back in May.

Also swiping bases this year, rounding out the Top 10: Ryan Howard (8), Raul Ibañez (4), Carlos Ruiz (3) and Eric Bruntlett (2). Greg Dobbs, Ben Francisco and the speedy Cole Hamels all had exactly one stolen base.
