From "Caught on the Fly," January 7, 1926:

Inadveratantly, in the publication of the Western leagye averages last week, [Clarence] Brooks of St. Joseph was giben credit for stealing 62 bases during the 1925 season. The name should have been [Charley] Gorman of Denver. Gorman led the base runner throughout the season and was the cleverest and fastest thing on the paths in the league.

Note: It was corrected in the guides (believe me, I checked!), but it did give me a start.
