Written by , Posted in Trivia

It’s that time again. Time for everyone’s favorite….TRIVIA!!! We’ll reveal the answer tomorrow unless someone guesses it before then.

Question:

Only three active players have ever had at least 45 HR and 45 doubles in the same year. Name them. (Bonus points if you can name the years)

Hint # 1 The Breed hd Maximum Overdrive hdAll three happened in the NL

Hint # 2

  • Derrek Lee – 2005
    Pujols has done it, don’t know the year.

    Not sure about the third one.

  • Seymour Butts

    Top of my head Larry Walker did it at Coors field ( mostly). But I don’t think that was this decade, It was before the turn of the Millenia. I don’t think he’s still active.

  • Ahh… figured it out, but I cheated on the third, so I will hold off saying who it is.

  • Tim

    Close….Todd Helton in 2001. Thanks MLB.com!!
    Pujols was in 2004.

  • Yea… its Helton.

    So Helton (2001), Pujols (2004), and Lee (2005)

    FWIW, while Helton was clearly helped by playing at Coors, he was still pretty awesome on the road:

    Home: .384/.478/.774 OPS: 1.252 – 31 2b, 27 HR
    Road: .286/.383/.593 OPS: .977 – 23 2b, 22 HR

    But man… his home numbers were ridiculous.

  • Terrelle Pryor 2

    I would have guessed Pujols in some year, Lee in 2005, and Soriano in 2006

  • Johnny come too Lately

    Is it ok to still guess the answer?
