Wrigley plunks

From 1988 to 2005, Craig Biggio has been hit 12 times at Wrigley Field. Only 7 players have been hit as many times at Wrigley, and they all played for the Cubs for at least some of those years. Sammy Sosa was plunked 17 times at Wrigley; Jeff Blauser, Scott Servais, Aramis Ramirez, Brian McRae, and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg where each plunked 13 times there; and Mickey Morandini recorded 12 plunks at the home of the Cubs.

clearly longevity has something to do with visiting players collecting the most HBPs in away ballfields.

any stats on players who reached certain HBP stats in opposing stadiums the fastest? 5HBPs, 10HBPs? and not necessarily by individual ballpark, but also road trip plunks:

Who was the player to reach 20 road trip plunks the fastest? 60? 100?

I'll work on this but I don't really have much data on individual player park splits or home/road splits (other than Biggio's of course). I was able to narrow down the Wrigley data by focusing on players who could have been hit more times than Biggio based on team splits, but it was still pretty time consuming.
