Adam Comorosky had a ten-year major league career with one great season.
He played most of his career with the Pirates. In 1928, he hit .295 on a team that had a .309 team average. Paul Waner and Lloyd Waner were in the outfield, Pie Traynor and Glenn Wright were in the infield, and "Rowdy Richard" Dick Bartell was a 20-year-old rookie.
In 1929, he hit .321 with 11 triples.
1930 was his big year. Although he only hit .313 (the team average was .303), he added 47 doubles, 23 triples, 12 home runs, and 119 RBI. He also led the National League with 33 sacrifice hits. Through the start of May that year, he was hitting .427.
No one since 1930 has beaten Comorosky's 23 triples in a season, although Dale Mitchell in 1949 tied it.
He came down to .286 in 1931, but the team average also came down to .285. Through the rest of his career, he never hit more than 6 triples in a season.
Adam played in the minors from 1925 to 1928, hitting .398 with Wichita in 1927. After his major league days, he played in the minors from 1936 to 1940, spending a couple years with the Toronto Maple Leafs where he was a teammate of future manager Mayo Smith.
