Making History and "Who was that player?"

Trivia time

Ichiro Suzuki's inside-the-park home run Tuesday was the first in All-Star game history.

What player set the major league record for inside-the-park home runs in a season with 12 in 1901?

Trivia answer

Sam Crawford, then with Cincinnati.

The Hall of Fame outfielder also played for Detroit, where he was a teammate of Ty Cobb's, and finished his career with 51 inside-the-park homers, a record that still stands.
