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."
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.
the other is Mays
I know Ryne Sandburg was close.
2nd and 3rd
Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan
but I don't think Varitek ever hit 20 triples
