Pujols was born. 

My high school biology teacher (and baseball card avatar here) George "Red" Witt pitched in relief in a couple of the Yankee blow out wins in this series. He also pitched for the 1962 Los Angeles Ange

Rare color footage of the 1947 Old Timers Game at Yankee Stadium with many all-time greats present. At the end is a clip from 1942 of the 47-year old Babe Ruth hitting a home run off the 55-yr old Walter Johnson.

Hope you can see this video. It's from Facebook.

they are the only players to lead the league in homers, triples, and doubles in a season.

If the other guy with Ty Cobb is indeed Tris Speaker, that can't be the answer because Speaker never led the league in triples if Baseball Reference is accurate.

Nobody has ever accomplished that feat. The closest was Stan Musial in 1948, who led the NL in doubles and triples,  but fell one short of leading in home runs.

clearly, you fail to recognize the genius of my 5th grade  year at school. 

to say i dominated would be a gross understatement of just how much i crushed ricky, mark, ray, and rik.

200 triples and 700 doubles?

Ty Cobb 297 triples and 724 doubles

Tris Speaker 222 triples and 792 doubles

You are correct, but I was thinking of it in a different way.

The only two players with at least 1,000 combined doubles and triples.

But yes, your answer is also right.

It's got to be either the Indians or A's player to Yogi's left.   But I don't recognize them right away.    Rocky Colavito?

Photo is from 1953 All-Star Game. He's the A's player. It was his only season with the A's. He played on seven different teams in his 13-year career.

Oh, and he is currently the oldest living former MLB player.
