Just another LAD July Triple leaderboard

JohnRoseboroslidinginto3rd

When Chris Taylor hit his triple last night, that gave him three in the month of July. Which gave me an excuse to see who has hit the most LAD triples in the month of July.

No surprise that the 3-Dog is tied at the top with Maury Wills.  Who can forget triple fever with Puig in July of 2014?

I never saw Charlie Neal play or John Roseboro as a Dodger only as a Senator.  John Roseboro is on this list twice. Very impressive for a catcher.  Johnny only had forty-four triples but he did have 39 by the age of 30.  I’ll show you just how impressive that is for a LAD, especially for a catcher.

The biggest surprise on this list has to be Casey Blake. Casey only hit 18 triples in his whole career which spanned 5091 plate appearances so for him to hit three in one month in only 106 plate appearances is quite the anomaly.

So, because John Roseboro showed up on this list twice we have to see who has the most LAD triples as a catcher.

Okay, this is crazy. No one is even close to John Roseboro. No one. Also, John Roseboro never hit another triple after leaving the Dodgers the in 1967.
