Yasiel Puig hits three of Dodgers’ five triples, joins elite company

Yasiel Puig returned to the lineup with a bang-bang-bang on Friday night, becoming the first Los Angeles Dodgers player since Jimmy Sheckard in 1901 to hit three triples in a single game.

...he became the 49th player in MLB history with at least three triples.

Jimmy Sheckard!  That’s who Puig reminds me of!  Man, that’s been bugging me.

The first triple was a little sporty.  A drive into left center that was batted down by a fan.  The umps spent four minutes looking at it and then awarded him a triple, which seems unlikely given the ball was left of center but whatever.  I’m sure nobody wanted the headache of telling him to go back to second.

The list of players with 3 triples in one game is a motley crew with some names expected (One Dog, Campaneris, Mays, Dimaggio) but also Doug Flynn (!!), a creaky 35-year-old Ernie Banks, and Jackie Robinson's nemesis Ben Chapman

It's a beautiful day for three home runs. Or even three triples, OK.

That list might double if they went beyond 1914
