Major League Record Book: Career Doubles

Our next stop in the major league record book is career doubles (in case you didn’t gather that from the title). We’ll start with the 2006-2017 list:

2006-2017
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 318
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 201
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 157
4 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 149
5 Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 42
6 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 38
7 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 22
Tyler White Haymarket ’10 22
9 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 19
10 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 19
11 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 18

Again, it’s the Daniel Murphy and Jason Kipnis show….

Luray has 4 of the 11, Haymarket and Covington have 2, and Staunton, Winchester, and Harrisonburg all have one.

The all-time list:

3 Aubrey Huff Staunton ’97 360
4 Reggie Sanders Winchester ’87 341

19 Kevin Kouzmanoff Winchester ’02 143
20 Denny Walling Waynesboro ’75 142
21 Jason Michaels Staunton ’95 140

On this list, Staunton has 5, Harrisonburg and Waynesboro have 4, Winchester and New Market have 2, and Luray, Charlottesville, Covington, and Front Royal all have 1.

Dan Murphy is already #5 on this list, and he’s still performing at a very high level in the majors. He’s only 23 doubles behind Reggie Sanders, and 42 behind Aubrey Huff. Dan has hit 40 or more doubles in a season three times in his career- he has a shot to climb to third all-time in 2018!
