If he maintains his lead, he’d be the first third baseman to lead a league in triples since John Castino did it for the Minnesota Twins in 1981. Free Press sports writer Ryan Ford takes a look at the Tigers and triples: Tripling up on the AL A Tiger has led the American League in triples 12 times in the previous 100 seasons: 1917, Ty Cobb: 24 1918, Ty Cobb: 14 1919, Bobby Veach: 17 1929, Charlie Gehringer: 19 1931, Roy Johnson: 19 1940, Barney McCosky: 19 1950, Hoot Evers: 11 1961, Jake Wood: 14 2007, Curtis Granderson: 23 2008,
