Dimaggio - 1937 - 284 - 355th all-time. Was even beaten by Dom in 1948, with 288.
Edgar - 1997 - 309 & Trout 2013 - 309 tied for 89th all-time.
Woody English was the insanely hard one. If you got that for reals, props to you.
In 1930, Woody English got on base 320 times, good for a tie for 38th all-time.
So we have Foxx, Jeter, and English. 2 more, and we haven't said who's on there twice. Let's get all of them first so it's not just random guessing as to who is twice.
Bill James mentioned it in his Historical Abstract that he had one ridiculous season and I've used that season a couple times in leagues. I was guessing that it was a. that good, and b. right handed. I didn't look it up today, I promise. Lucky guess.
