Vince Coleman, who won Rookie of the Year and spent six years with the Cardinals in 1985 was in Springfield, Mo. for the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Induction ceremony and festivities.

Coleman's big-league career spanned 13 seasons from 1985 to 1997, owns the sixth-most steals in baseball history (752), the sixth-most in National League history (660) and second-most in St. Louis Cardinals history (549). 

He led the NL in stolen bases for six consecutive seasons while with St. Louis (1985 to 1990) and is one of only four big-leaguers ever to steal 100 bases in a season. Of his 752 stolen bases, 549 came during his time in St. Louis while playing for Whitey Herzog. 

The first three years of that stretch featured seasons of 105, 107 and 109 steals – with his 1985 season leading to the NL Rookie of the Year award. The all-time steals list features Rickey Henderson (1,406), the Cardinals’ Lou Brock (938), Billy Hamilton (912), Ty Cobb (892), Tim Raines (808) and Coleman. Overall, Coleman played in 1,371 games. He finished with a .264 batting average and 1,425 hits, which included 176 doubles, 89 triples and 28 home runs. He also finished with 346 RBI. Between 1991 and 1997, he played for the New York Mets, Kansas City Royals (1994, part of 1995), Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers.
