Even though we just released the 2019 Valley League Annual, we continue on with daily posts (this is, I think, the 300th day in a row that I’ve posted).

Most triples in a major league career…

2006-2019
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’04-5 29
2 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 25
3 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 23
4 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 15
5 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 5
6 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 4

Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 2
11 Blake Tekotte Woodstock ’06 1
Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 1
Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 1
