(Bay Area, CA)
Ty Cobb, Detroit Tigers
Sam Crawford Cincinnati Reds Rookie 1899
Mike asked: Who was the last player to hit multiple inside the park home runs in a season and when?
Rick answered: Mike, thank you for your question.
The last player to hit multiple inside the park home runs in a season was Ty Cobb, for the Detroit Tigers in 1909.
He hit 9 that season.
There is only one other player to share this statistic, Sam Crawford, who hit 12 in 1901, for the Cincinnati Reds.
One of the more exciting plays in the game.
Yours in baseball,
