Stolen Bases in 2002

Luis Castillo from Florida had the most stolen bases, 48, in 2002. In order to find this I typed [Baseball 2002 stolen bases National Major League]. The first site to come up was a wikipidea page containing the answer about 3/4 of the way down.

I probably would have started at the MLB.com website first. Then checked Google if I ran into a dead end.

I agree with Taylor. I probably would have navigated around the Major League Baseball Web site to find the information (or would have typed in the statistic in the search bar on the site). I might have also tried entering the statistic into the search bar on baseball-reference.com, though that's a lesser-known site (I usually use this site to find baseball stats on a regular basis).

Many different ways to find this information, but MLB.com is likely the most straightforward.

I am unable to navigate MLB well enough to find any information before 2003. Furthermore, when I use baseball-reference.com I still get Castillo, who was said in class to be incorrect. If anyone can give me a hand I would appreciate it. Here is a link so you can see what I’m looking at http://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/NL/2002-batting-leaders.shtml

There is also an online baseball almanac that lists the national league leaders for stolen bases that goes all the way back to 1891.

Wikipedia has good information, but a more reliable source may have been sports websites that keep record of important sports events.
