Stealing bases is an art. There have been many players over the years who have tried their hand at matching the same success rate as some of the best to ever do it. While some have been more successful than others, oftentimes, the volume required to be considered an elite base stealer simply is not there.

But there are those other times when a player just has that special something that can elevate them higher than the rest and find their way toward the top of an organization's best single-season stolen base numbers. These players were highly respected for perfecting their craft and being able to reach heights in the stolen base department that very few could attain.

While the 2023 season saw the re-introduction of the stolen base to the masses and not just the select few who possess the rare skill set that was previously required to swipe bags at a high volume, there is a good chance that organizations will see a big change at the top of the stolen base leaders relatively soon. Before that happens, let's take some time to acknowledge the five most recent players to steal 50 or more bases in Cleveland baseball history.

(Note: This list includes individual players not their individual seasons, as there are multiple entries on this list by one player in particular, with the most recent being the only one accounted for).
