Default Saturday Trivia: "Triple" Threats

Name the four players who hit the most triples in a season in MLB history (all-time, any season by any player) while appearing in at least one game at the shortstop position in that same season.

Honus Wagner and Bobby Wallace might be on the list.

Great guesses but neither make the cut. Wallace's high of 21 just misses tying for 3rd place, and Wagner's 22 (which would tie him for 3rd) was done prior to him playing SS.

Last guess for me: George Davis, whose T206 card you use for your picture.

Correct! I was hoping someone would make that connection.

George Davis is #1 on the list, having hit 27 triples for the Giants in 1893. It's also #7 on the all-time list for players at any position.

#2 is harder but I think someone can get it. #3 and #4 are more tricky...

Bobby, I'll take a couple of wild guesses.

Would George Brett or Willie Wilson be one of the answers?

Lou,

Not the guys I'm looking for. Wilson's career high was 21, and Brett's was 20.

Hint: Player #2 on the list played only at shortstop the year he accomplished this. He also had two future HOF pitchers as teammates.

This one popped into my head because I know he hit a lot of triples, I just hope he played a game at shortstop. Sam Crawford? ETA: probably not, he was left handed.

Crawford would indeed be on the list if he had played (lefty) shortstop. He hit an impressive 26, 25, 23 and 22 triples in different seasons. Still looking....

Hint #2: The teams that these players played for in the season they accomplished this feat are:

Player #2: Cleveland Spiders
Player #3a: Washington Senators
Player #3b: New York Highlanders
