Aubrey Huff Staunton ’97 2004 178
Juan Pierre Harrisonburg ’98 2011 178

We could call this the Juan Pierre list, I think. Juan’s 221 hits in 2004 actually places 81st All-Time, which seems pretty impressive to me. Juan is on this list a whopping eight times- 40% of the entire list. Besides him, Aubrey Huff is listed three times, Mo Vaughn, David Eckstein and Dan Murphy twice, and Steve Finley, Mike Lowell and Gene Richards once. Murphy is the only player on both lists.
