That's what speed do

The Royals are a franchise known for their speed. Nine times they have led the league in steals, and only nine times have they even finished in the bottom half of the league. The artificial turf of old Royals Stadium created the perfect environment for a team of speedsters, but even more recently with a grass surface, the Royals have been adept at swiping bases.

A Royals player has swiped twenty or more bases in a season 90 times, by 36 different players. Some of them are multiple All-Stars, known for their thievery, others were barely in Kansas City, but collected some steals in their brief tenure.

How many can you name?
