only two players have reached the 20-20-20 club (doubles, triples, and homers) AND the 30-30 (homers and steals)in the same season.

he tried to come back with the Giants this spring and I seem to recall something about that and thinking that I never knew how good of a hitter he was but then I remembered "ah, bandbox in Philly, that's right."


Does band box status help any stat beside HRs? I would think

it's easier to hit a triple in Chavez Ravine than Citizens Bank, with the extra space for the ball to roll.

at Coors Field it certainly helps because the OF has to play so deep lots of dinks fall in.

Probably right in that it wouldn't help for triples, however (but it would help to get him to the 30-30 club). He was a very good hitter, don't get me wrong, I just didn't think of him as that fantastic to be able to do something only one other guy has been able to do.
