Major League Record Book: Career Triples

You would think that the names would be different for such a speed-centric stat, and there are some new names here, but many of the same dudes, too…

2006-2018
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 28
2 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 25
3 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 22
4 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 13
5 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 5
6 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 4
7 Scott Cousins Harrisonburg ’05 3
Tyler White Haymarket ’10 3
9 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2
Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 2
11 Blake Tekotte Woodstock ’06 1
Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 1
Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 1
Stephen Cardullo Covington ’07 1

Addition: Tyler White, even with his competing nicknames, “Great White,” and “Big Puddin'”, which don’t exactly make him seem too speedy (and he isn’t), hit 3 triples in 2018 to jump all the way up to #7. (Big Puddin’? Seriously?)

Changes: The only change is that Jon Jay’s 7 triples enabled him to pass Jason Kipnis into 2nd place.

Additions: None

Changes:

  • Brett Gardner hit 7 triples in 2018, and passed Reggie Sanders into 4th place
  • Jon Jay went flying up the list- from #19 in 2017 to #13 in 2018

So, quick vote: which San Diego uniform is better? Old school, or new?
