i’m curious to see which teams these players played for when they hit all these triples. It’s good to see that certain records haven’t been tainted by the steroid era. To get 20 triples, a player has to hit a triple every 8.1 games. That seems very difficult. I guess that’s why it’s been only 8 times since 1945
