3. Al Bumbry – 252 stolen bases

Al Bumbry played for the Baltimore Orioles virtually his entire career, from 1972 to 1984. The only other team he played for was the San Diego Padres during his final season in 1985.

Bumbry burst onto the scene, earning the AL Rookie of the Year award in 1973, though he did not earn an All-Star appearance that year, that wouldn’t come until his 1980 season.

That 1980 season is the best season he had in his career, as he slashed .318/.392/.433 with nine home runs, 118 runs, 53 RBIs, and 44 stolen bases. He even earned some consideration for the AL MVP award, finishing 13th in the voting for the award that was eventually given to George Brett that year.

Bumbry also won a World Series with the Orioles in 1983 when they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in five games, and was inducted into the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame in 1987.
