Fun Fact of the Day:
Most of the time runs scored are in result of the batter batting the guy in, so it is not entirely up to the runner. However, if the runner is fast and had stolen a beast before hand, being a smart runner and all, it definitely increases his chances of scoring. There have been many tremendous scorers throughout the history of the game, including many 100+ run seasons, but who had the most during one campaign? Billy Hamilton back in 1894 scored a total of 198 times in just 132 games. It was due to the fact that he had tons of speed (100 stolen bases that year) and two Hall of Famers batting behind him who both had 100+ RBI’s that season. Despite the fact Billy Hamilton played over 100 years ago, he was one of the greatest speedsters of all-time.
