Tuesday Trivia: Triple Double
Basketball has the triple double, which is a game in which a player posts double digit stats in three of the four main counting stats (points, rebounds, assists, or steals). That got me wondering about the baseball equivalent. The first one that came to mind was a season that had double digits in doubles, triples and home runs in a season. You’d think it would have happened more often than it has, which leads us to our trivia question.
Since 1961, five Cubs hitters have posted a season in which they had at least 10 home runs, 10 triples, and 10 doubles. Can you name them?
