Only 39 players all-time have 100 hits, 100 doubles, 100 triples, 100 home runs, and 100 stolen bases. Name the only active player who meets this elusive standard.

I hate to call Rickey "lazy", but he only has 66 career triples.

Well, I've heard this one before. So I'm pretty sure that it's Steve Finley.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by Continental League on Fri Feb 20, 2004 1:31 am EST.</span>

It's funny, I had never heard it before until a member of my family posed it as a vague hypothetical recently. Then I was simply too curious not to look it up.

My buddy Dan asked me the same question a week ago- or something similar. Finley is the only active major leaguer with more than 100 triples. Which clued me in.

Can you name, for absolutely no fabulous prizes, the last player before Finley to do it?

No. I've got no clue there. Though I can say with certainty that Ty Cobb and Lou Gehrig are both members.

Certainly. As well as Honus Wagner, Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker, Rogers Hornsby, George Sisler, Heinie Manush, Lou Brock, Willie Mays, Vada Pinson...

The only people to have done it any time in "recent" memory are Pete Rose, George Brett, Robin Yount, Paul Molitor and Tim Raines (Sr.).

It seems somewhat likely that Kenny Lofton will do it easily enough -- already at 86 triples, and he hit 8 last year and 9 in 2002. Johnny Damon is at 68, but he's only 29 and still speedy. The other ones close in number are Robbie Alomar -- at 78, but only hit 2 last year and given his hitting decline, it seems unlikely; Barry Bonds at 74 (averaging about 2 a year since 1999); DeLino DeShields, 74; Barry Larkin, 73; and Jose Offerman, 69. None of these guys are hitting triples fast enough, IMO, to reach 100 before retirement. The only other young player worth mentioning is Ray Durham (31 yrs.) -- 62 triples. Last year, 8 triples, was his career low since his '95 rookie season.

But the last man to accomplish this elusive feat holds no candle to the heady first-mentioned list of likely hall-of-famers. It is career .259 hitter, 3-time All-Star Juan Samuel, of all people -- 102 triples, 1983-1998. In 2 of his all-star seasons, he led the NL in triples -- 19 in 1984, 15 in 1987. He went into 1997 with 98 career triples, but his 95-AB campaign with the Jays put him over the mark, with 4 triples (out of 27 hits) that year.

It should also be noted that Henry Aaron has 98 career triples.
