Billy Hamilton - 7

Philadelphia Phillies - Aug. 31, 1894

Billy Hamilton (inset) took a lead, got a good jump and stole his way into the baseball record books. The Reds speedster became the first player to steal four bases in his first Major League start. However, the next time Hamilton racks up four stolen bags in a game won't be nearly as notable, even among baseball players named Billy Hamilton. 24 players in Major League history have stolen five or more bases in a game, including Hall of Fame outfielder Billy Hamilton, who finished his 14-year career with more than 900 steals. SI.com went through the baseball annals to find the players the 21st century Billy Hamilton should have his sights on.
