Major League Record Book: Career Triples

Most triples in a major league career since the 2006 draft….

1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 25
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 21
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 15
4 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 7
5 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 5
6 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 4
7 Scott Cousins Harrisonburg ’05 3
8 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2
Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 2
10 Blake Tekotte Woodstock ’06 1
Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 1
Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 1
Stephen Cardullo Covington ’07 1

Brett Gardner Watch: 50 career triples- in 1st place, with double the next highest!

A few things to notice about this list:

  • Yonder Alonso is not 4th like most of the other lists (he’s 8th)
  • Ryan Schimpf went from zero to #5 on this list in about 220 at-bats
  • This is a list of EVERY major leaguer (since 2006) to record a triple at all. Look at those “1’s” at the bottom.

Up next: the almighty topic of home runs!
