Players Who Led The League In Triples And Home Runs At Least Once Each

With Curtis Granderson currently tied for the AL lead in HRs while leading in triples, I thought I would find all of the players who had led the league in both in the same year as well as the others who did it but not in the same year. Some guys led one league in HRs one year and another league in 3Bs another year, like Dick Allen. They are all below, linked to Baseball Reference. If I missed anybody, let me know. They are in no order except the guys who did it in the same year are listed first. There are alot of Hall of Famers here. There are 33 in all.

Harry Stovey (twice in the same year)
Tip O'Neill (once in the same year and lead in 2Bs, too)
Harry Lumley (once in the same year)
Jim Bottomley (once in the same year)
Tommy Leach (once in the same year)
Willie Mays (once in the same year)
Mickey Mantle (once in the same year)
Jim Rice (once in the same year)
