one shot wonders/single season records

If you look back at single season records for batters, some of them have
been set by people who never came close again:

        HR: 61 (Maris never had as many as 40 in any other season)
        Doubles: 64 (can't remember the name, but never hit as many as 50 in
                any other season)
        Triples: 36 (name eludes me, but he never hit as many as 20 in any
                other season)

Brandon Cope

(ps. Earl Webb is either the leader with doubles or triples; can't remember
which)

thanks to my handy-dandy franklin thingy,

  in 1931 earl webb hit 67 doubles (record).  the most he hit
  in any other year was 30.

  in 1912 chief wilson hit 36 triples (record).  the most he hit
  in any other year was 14.
