I know it has been a while since we have done a post in this series. The Riverdogs played their last game before the South Atlantic League All Star game so I figured this would be a good place to pick it back up. So these are the fact. Jorge Mateo has played in 62 games in Charleston and through those games he has racked up 50 stolen bases (not to shabby). Remember we are not comparing Billy Hamilton today vs. Mateo we are taking the 2011 numbers of Billy Hamilton. Why? Because that was Billy's age 20 season which Mateo is currently playing in. Also Billy was still playing the middle infield at that time as well. So here is how they stack up
Through Game 62
Jorge Mateo 50 Stolen Bases
Billy Hamilton 52 Stolen Bases
By seasons end Billy Hamilton played in 135 games and ended with 103 stolen bases.
Through Game 135
Billy Hamilton 103 Stolen Bases
Jorge Mateo 108 Stolen Bases*
*108 is the on pace number for Jorge.
