Continuing the power-hitting shortstops theme, I am interested in determining who hit the most career doubles at the position.
We run into issues with a few old-time greats, Joe Cronin and Honus Wagner. Both guys hit over 500 doubles but they played in seasons that Baseball-Reference is missing many box scores and thus splits.

Honus is very likely the all-time leader for doubles by a shortstop but since we don’t know for certain I have left he and Cronin off this list.
The nearly 100% accurate list follows:
