Can U stand reading another post on Butler?


I noticed that Butler now has 274 total bases on the season, giving him an outside shot at the coveted 300 TB figure.

 

This has been accomplished only 18 times in team history, by a total of only 10 players:

Brett 4 times

Beltran 3

Dye, McRae, Sweeney 2 times each

Damon, Cowens, Tartabull, Mayberry, Seitzer once each

 

Obviously, that reads like a who's who of Royals hitters. Would be great to see Billy stay hot enough to pick up 26 more TBs in the last 12 games. Odds are against that, as his pace is only for about 296.

 

Didn't bother to research the ages of any of these when accomplished - but I'll bet only two or three (at most) were able to do it at age 23 or less.
