Maury Wills was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1951. By the time he made his MLB debut in 1959, the Dodgers had already packed up and moved to Los Angeles. It was a long time coming for Wills, but once he hit the MLB scene, he became a superstar. From 1959 through 1966, Wills was one of the fastest players in the game. During that time span, Wills led the National League in stolen bases seven times, led the majors in stolen bases three times, played in seven MLB All-Star Games and captured three World Series titles (1959, 1963 and 1965). In 1962, Wills set a live-ball era record with 104 stolen bases in one season. He was the MVP of the 1962 MLB All-Star Game (1st Game) and went on to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. He spent two and a half years with the Pirates and Expos before returning to LA near the beginning of the 1969 season. He played four more seasons with the Dodgers until he retired in 1972. Wills' 41.8 average stolen bases per year is the 10th highest average for any player with at least 10 mlb seasons under his belt.
