Morning all, and welcome to the one year anniversary of Sporcle Saturday!
Yolmer Sanchez had himself a game on Thursday, going 3-5 with 3 RBI and 2 triples. As Josh mentioned on the White Sox Wake Up Call, that’s the first time a Sox player has done that at a home opener since 1972. That posed a question with a much bigger set of answers, and is the theme of today’s quiz: how many White Sox players have hit at least two triples in a game? The answer is 104, though I’m not going to make you guess the players to have done it before 1950. I can’t imagine many people would have guessed Patsy Dougherty as the 1904 answer, but 1950 is recent enough that I think most folks will be familiar with the names listed past that date. Good luck!
- As always, first and last names accepted, as well as just the surname.
- I’ve given you ten minutes to attempt completion.
- For hints, I’ve provided the date of the game, and the defensive position of the player in question.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or confuse your friends:
- One player on this list actually had three triples in a game. Their overall line: 6-6, 4 runs scored, and 4 RBI. (14-4 win over the Twins)
- The highest Win Probability added from the players on this list: .433, a 2-4, 2 RBI effort in a 9-6 loss to the Twins.
- “That’s what speed do”: as if two triples weren’t enough, one player in 1995 also added three stolen bases. (A 10-4 victory against the Blue Jays)
