Trivia: double-digit steals and doubles

Aoki accomplished the feat every year from 2005-2010. In 2006 he had 26 doubles and 41 steals. In fact, Aoki collected more than 20 steals and 20 doubles three times in his career.

The first two installments of Tsubamegun’s trivia column were a bit on the nasty side, so we have one here for you that’s a bit more pedestrian.

There are five players currently on the roster that have stolen at least 10 bases and collected at least 10 doubles in the same season.

Can you name all five of them in less than two minutes?

About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo's more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it's a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini

    Absolutely smoked it! Got all five right with 1:23 to spare on the clock. Only had to think twice about one of them.
