Who are the other three guys, and what do all four have in common?

All are Triple Crown winners.  Jimmie Foxx, Rogers Hornsby, and either Joe Medwick or Chuck Klein, I'm guessing.

Bill Terry and George Sisler are the other 2, then, and they're all .400 hitters.  I was kinda close...

All members of the .400 Club at that time, August 9, 1958.

Old Timers game. Not sure why Cobb wasn't there. He passed in 1961.

What is unique about this box score? 

July 28, 1963, Cardinals at Cubs

I don't know the answer but I will take a couple of guesses, it has to be one of the few times Musial struck out three times in a game, if not the only time. My other guess would be the 3 guys who would later become announcers, White, McCarver and Shannon, which is just more of a coincidence.

Your guess is trivia gold!

The only time in a 22-year career and 3,026 games that Stan the Man struck out three times in a game. That was his final season too. Dick Ellsworth was the pitcher who got the trifecta. He was a 23-year old lefty who finished the season 22-10 with an ERA of 2.11.
