    Boomer & Pops are both guys you wouldn't expect to see in this context.

    Isn't Lou Brock the opposite of George Scott?

    I don't think Drop Third Strike is an official statistic, but I queried retrosheet for following conditions:
    all plate appearances where
    1. a strikeout was recorded
    2. no out was was recorded
    3. either a Wild Pitch or Passed Ball was ruled on the play.

    Top 11:
    NAME D3K*
    Garret Anderson 14
    Lou Brock 14
    George Scott 12
    Rafael Belliard 12
    Alfonso Soriano 12
    Vladimir Guerrero 11
    Willie Stargell 11
    Adrian Beltre 10
    Miguel Olivo 10
    Miguel Tejada 10
    Garry Templeton 10

    I then removed the WP or PB qualification:

    NAME D3K
    Lou Brock 16
    Garret Anderson 14
    George Scott 13
    Rafael Belliard 12
    Alfonso Soriano 12
    Vladimir Guerrero 11
    Willie Stargell 11
    Miguel Olivo 11
    Miguel Tejada 11
    Bobby Bonds 11
    Shawon Dunston 11
    Julio Franco 10
    Roberto Alomar 10
    Garry Templeton 10
    Harold Baines 10
    Jacque Jones 10
    Adrian Beltre 10

    They only circumstance that this wouldn't account for is if an existing baserunner was thrown out trying to advance on the D3K. When I find time I'll write a more thorough query but I doubt the totals would change very much. If you can think of any other necessary qualifications I can write them in as well.

    Don't know, but here's twice in one half-inning (top of 10th).

    Wow. I'm clueless, but I'm 90% sure Elias carries stuff like that.

    Most times reaching base on dropped 3rd strike

    Does MLB keep such statistics? I'd like to know how often that event occurs as well as some other information about it. Like who has reached base most often that way? Ever happen on consecutive batters? Things like that.

    Thanks ahead if anyone can provide information, or direct me to a good website so I can look it up myself.
