List of Major League Baseball career triples leaders

In baseball, a triple is a hit in which the batter advances to third base in one play, with neither the benefit of a fielding error nor another runner being put out on a fielder's choice.[1] Triples were more common in baseball's dead-ball era, when teams relied more on stolen bases and hit and run plays than on the home run.[2] More distant fences in old ballparks, such as Pittsburgh's Forbes Field and Detroit's Tiger Stadium, also produced fewer home runs and more triples on well-hit balls.[3] As a result, most of the players on this list have been retired for decades.[4] In 2006, the Hardball Times lamented the decline of the 100-triple player, although three have joined the list since that time.[5] Fangraphs, a statistical website, likewise noted the lack of modern 100-triple hitters in 2013.[6] Of the 162 Major League Baseball players who have hit 100 or more triples, 69 are members of Baseball's Hall of Fame.[7]

Hall of Famer Sam Crawford of the Detroit Tigers holds the Major League Baseball triples record, with 309.[8][9] Second to him is his Tigers teammate,[10] Ty Cobb, with 297, the American League record.[11] Honus Wagner is third with 252, the National League record.[12] Jake Beckley (243), Roger Connor (233), Tris Speaker (222), Fred Clarke (220), and Dan Brouthers (205) are the only other players to have hit at least 200 triples. Only triples hit during the regular season are included in the totals (George Brett, Rafael Furcal, and Derek Jeter are tied for the record in post-season triples, with five).[13]

Jim O'Rourke was the first player to reach the 100-triple mark, doing so with the New York Giants in 1886.[14] With Kenny Lofton's retirement after the 2007 season, 2008 was the first season since 1885 in which no active player had more than 100 triples.[14] Carl Crawford hit his 100th triple in 2010, becoming the only active player on the list at that time. José Reyes became the latest player to reach the 100 triple plateau, doing so on April 8, 2012.

  2. ^ Some older sources give Williams's career total as 138. According to SABR, "After Jimmy was collared in the season opener ..., Bill 'Wee Willie' Dammann gave up the overlooked hit when Cincy outfielder Elmer Smith, a Pittsburgh native and a former Pirate for several years, 'made a very bad mess of handling Jimmy's fly to left.' No hometown news outlet charged Elmer with an error for his misjudged 'awkward path' yet some box scores neglected to give Williams a triple, but 'the ball fell safe, Williams taking three bases.'"[81]

Triple (baseball)

In baseball, a triple is the act of a batter safely reaching third base after hitting the ball, with neither the benefit of a fielder's misplay (see error) nor another runner being put out on a fielder's choice. A triple is sometimes called a "three-bagger" or "three-base hit". For statistical and scorekeeping purposes it is denoted by 3B.Triples have become somewhat rare in Major League Baseball. It often requires a ball hit to a distant part of the field, or the ball taking an unusual bounce in the outfield. It also usually requires that the batter hit the ball solidly, and be a speedy runner. It also often requires that the batter's team have a good strategic reason for wanting the batter on third base, as a double will already put the batter in scoring position and there will often be little strategic advantage to taking the risk of trying to stretch a double into a triple. (The inside-the-park home run is much rarer than a triple). The trend for modern ballparks is to have smaller outfields (often increasing the number of home runs); it has ensured that the career and season triples leaders mostly consist of those who played early in Major League Baseball history, generally in the dead-ball era.

A walk-off triple (one that ends a game) occurs very infrequently. For example, the 2016 MLB season saw only three walk-off triples, excluding one play that was actually a triple plus an error.
