Tonight we asked…
#FTFTrivia Who was the last Pirate to hit three triples in one game?
— Forbes to Federal (@ForbesToFederal) January 3, 2013
…and the answer to tonight’s #FTFTrivia is…
Clemente knocked three triples on September 8th, 1958 against Cincinnati (box score); no other Pirates player has accomplished the feat since then. Other Buccos to hit three three-baggers in one game include Dave Brain in 1905, Chief Wilson in 1911, and Carlos Bernier in 1953. Additional triples records can be viewed HERE. We ask a question about Clemente tonight because the 40th anniversary of his tragic death was this past Monday, December 31.
Congrats to tonight’s winners: @SteelCityVoice, @NuttingHostage, @johnlucas18, and @AJMeneo.
Thanks to all who participated, and tune in next time for another edition of #FTFTrivia.
