Delmon Young fastest in 10 yard dash

and a 10 yard dash is about quickness, not speed.

Yeah. Not that I'm putting down Delmon. I love having him on the team and am happy he's in great shape. I just don't think a fast 10 yard dash has much to do with baseball.

Well the 10 yard dash shows acceleration and seeing as 10 yards is 30 feet aka a third of the way to first base and more than that if you on already. I'd say it has something to do with baseball.

You are absolutely correct. quickness is a key skill to have in this game. And it is everything in stealing bases. The really good base stealers are at top speed in two steps. Thats quickness, or a big part of a "jump" along wth a good and correct read of the pitcher. Delmon does not really have the top speed of a base stealer, but I have noticed that he is running very well.
