Marlin's Dee Gordon Chasing Feat Done Only by Cobb, Wagner and Browns' George Sisler.

The Miami Marlins' Dee Gordon is chasing this year a feat that has only been accomplished by the Uber-Hall of Famers Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Brownie George Sisler.  That feat is leading the major leagues in both batting average and stolen bases.

Good luck to Dee!
