Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Edward Irvin (1882 - February 5, 1916) was a 30-year-old replacement player in one game for the Detroit Tigers on May 18, 1912, after the regular team went on strike to protest the suspension of Ty Cobb, following Cobb's attack on a handicapped fan in New York. Irvin had two triples in three at-bats against the Philadelphia Athletics. He shares the record with Cecil Bolton for most triples in a career with no other hits at two. Irvin was the only member of the replacement Tigers to get a hit in a 24-2 loss, although two members of the coaching staff (Deacon McGuire and Joe Sugden), who were pressed into service for that game, each got one hit.
