Single Season Leaders for Triples
Speed is the key to making this chart. Are players today faster than they once were? Are they slower? There are many arguments supporting both sides, supporting better defense, supporting better pitching but the truth is only a few active players appear anywhere on this chart.
Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the top five-hundred all-time single season leaders in Major League triples. Note: A bold faced entry denotes that the player was active during the previous Major League season.
