    Gwynn.

    I forgot he was thinner earlier in his career.  I never would have guessed this, but I think it's right.

    It’s correct....he was also drafted by the San Diego Padres and the NBA Clippers on the same day.

    Besides Gwynn George Sisler did it in 1922 and King Kelly did it in 1886

    I looked him up. Your 1940 cutoff excluded Joe. He led in triples with 15 in 1936 (rookie season) and HRs with 46 in 1937. Not bad.

    Trout?
