Came across this item-hard to believe
Mazeroski's pivot was so fast and he released the ball so quickly, he turned 1,706 career double plays -- by far the most of any second baseman in baseball history.

At the peak of his career, he and former Gold Glove shortstop Gene Alley turned a remarkable 161 double plays in 1966 -- or nearly one per game, a record that may never be broken.
