    Maybe I'm reading the question incorrectly. For example, Willie Mays is not among the top 50 triple hitters of all time, but you credit him. He IS among the top 50 outfielders' triples list. So, what is it? Outfielders who are among the top 50 all time triples leaders who hit 300 homers- or, who among the 50 leading triples outfielders hit 300 homers?

    I thought I read outfielder triples and double checked the caption and saw "of the top..." and figured I misread. It seems I misread more than once.

    I would guess Aaron but the order seems to be "by career HR" so it cannot be him, nor can it be Jimmie Foxx. Essentially you are talking guys with 302-475 HR who played pre-1980s. The list is small. I'll try. Joe DiMaggio?
