More about Pitcher Pickoffs Leaders

Pitching pickoffs leaders are those who successfully picked off a runner on either first base, second base, or third base (though getting picked off from first base is by far the most common). Left-handed pitchers have a slight advantage by being able to throw to first base more easily, though that advantage compared to right-handed pitchers by runners who feel they can take a slightly larger lead on a right-handed pitcher and thus may be more likely to be picked off by them.  Pickoffs are not very common and any pitcher with five or six successful pickoffs in a season is almost always enough to lead the league.  The majority of pitchers in any given season will not successfully pick off any runners.
