I see that Johnny Estrada has the most PA without a triple--2244.

Aikens triple. He hit just 2 regular-season triples in 2,856 PAs.

In modern MLB history, only 9 players had at least 2,000 PAs and a lower 3B rate than Aikens:
-- Eight catchers (including actives V.Martinez, B.McCann and R.Barajas); and
-- Ed Romero, perhaps the slowest middle infielder to have a long career. In 2,111 PAs, Romero had 1 triple and 9 SB with 10 CS.

Willie McGee is the right answer for the other player named Willie to homer twice in a World Series game.

Willie Mays appeared in 20 games in 4 World Series, but never homered. His only post-season homer was in the 1971 NLCS.

Jim Kaat is the right answer for oldest pitcher to appear in Game 1 of a World Series, for the Cardinals against the Brewers in 1982.

Oldest pitcher (in fact, the oldest player) to appear in any World Series game is the As 47 year-old Jack Quinn, in game 3 of the 1930 WS.

It is Willie McGee. He has 3 WS HRs of which two were hit in game 3 of the 1982 WS and his home run log shows 1 2HR game. He played in 2201 games. It was easy to track down. I went to the play index and searched for guys who played 2200-2299 games. There were two Willies, McGee and Randolph. From there I searched their WS and home run log stats.
