Doubles entendre (Trivia!)

 

As of today, Matt Holliday is on pace for 49 doubles.  That brings me to two questions for Cardinal Nation...

 

1.  Name the five players in team history to rack up 50 or more doubles in a single season.

2.  Who holds the record for most doubles in a season by a St. Louis Cardinal (including Browns/Perfectos)?

 

Hint:  Doubles weren't really the cool thing to do until the 1920's (oddly appropriate) seemingly apart from the early legends such as Cobb and Wagner.  This is due in part because of the more spacious ballparks which led to many triples that would've been doubles in today's game.  The early Browns/Cardinals teams were led in the two-bagger department by guys with names like Jack Glasscock and Dave "Pinky And The" Brain (neither of which approached 50 in a season).  That said, there was still one Browns player in the 1800's who managed to collect 50 doubles by the end of the season, and was arguably the franchise's first superstar.  He's one of the five.

 

I'll reveal the answers later on (unless you cheat by using baseball-reference, you bastards!)
