It's a fun trivia question. Gonna have to put that one in my back pocket for a friend of mine. We always try to best each other at sports trivia.

Here's one: This was a bar bet a guy I know gave to me years ago and I think I got it right. Kind of difficult. He asked that at every position, who won MVPs in two consecutive seasons?

I got a bunch of them. Yogi Berra catcher

Mike Schmidt third

Ernie Banks short

Joe Morgan Second

Jimmie Fox first

Dale Murphy left

Mickey Mantle Center

Barry Bonds right

There are a few others afterwords I think.

Again, these are off the top of my head. I thought Mays did but I'm not sure.

There was only one pitcher which is the tough one. Played for the Tigers.

Great site for all kinds of trivia including a bunch of baseball, www.sporcle.com.


To answer the earlier question about players who got 3,000 hits or more all with one team (they didn't specifically have that quiz, but if your do their 3,000 hit club quiz the answers become obvious):

Musial
Jeter
Yastrzemski
Brett
Yount
Gwynn
Biggio
Kaline
Clemente

ALL with one team. So that would obviously exclude Mays & Aaron.

Try this one, name the four players in MLB history to have homered while still a teenager and also at 40 or more years of age.

They smoked us last night -- Chris will have to be sharp 2nite, to give us a shot at Severino Sunday & the series -- they're playing at nite, outta the brutal daytime heat

AL West is competitive right now -- King Felix & Bartolo, 46, will school their opponents tonite -- Oakland W5 --
Tygiz are history amid controversy which, if it was like Bosio said it was w/regard to his dismissal, oh God -- unbelievable ......
however, Gardenhire is defending the move, & Stumpf says he didn't have any "Spider Monkey" nickname that he was aware of.....

oh these prim & proper times -- sensitivity training classes are next, hurties MUST be monitored at all times -- & let's go Sawx, Blow Their Stinkin Doors Off

When I was a Kid Kaline was half a trivia answer. He had most home runs without a 30 homer season (399) and Stan the Man had the most homers without a 40 homer season (475)

What two batters have surpased Stan?

And re: Al Kaline. I remember buying a Kaline glove at the end of his career. It was 1/3 cheaper than the exact same glove endorsed by an up and comer. As my kids will tell you I'm a cheap SOB. RIP for that glove b1972 d2004

He mashed 521 of em, many of the tape-measure variety
Yet his all-time Bomb, one that rendered useless any tape measure, Is Not Among Them :WTF: -- a rocket literally last seen somewhere out over what is now the area known as McCovey's Cove

Tape measure? What good would that have done when, as Willie was quoted in later years, "the ball landed in Oakland"

So dumbfounded were the umpires as they lost sight of the ball as it left Candlestick, that they called it foul -- Willie was angry, Al Dark raised a good stink, all of course to no avail -- press & fans who had the angle on it also saw it fair

Yet this mega-blown call unwittingly paved the way for the greatest pitchers duel of all time -- Juan-Spahn, July 2, 1963, 16 shutout innings each, SF won on a Willie Mays HR

Stretch's moon shot was bottom of the ninth too & would've won the game -- Warren almost did -- at the plate top 7, thought he spotted something in his opposite #'s high-kicking delivery, Boom -- the 42 year old iron man crushed one off the RF fence, just missing a HR

these #s have to look like Greek to the modern-day fan, who missed it when it was a Game & men were men -- Warren, 35 career HR, the most by any pitcher ever -- it's true, you could look it up

I was at this game in 1965 at Shea

https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYN/NYN196508270.shtml

McCovey hit two homers. One was a skyscraper of the scoreboard. The other one was a liner that was the hardest hit ball I've ever seen. If my 9 year old brain encoded it properly it was like Back To The Future; the ball was out of the park before it was pitched.

Mays was the best hitter on the Giants; "Stretch" was the most feared,

1965? Boy are you old!

There are times I wish I had been around in the '60s. Some of those great HOFers. The pitchers. Gibson, Drysdale, Koufax, Marichal.

They would stick it in your ear just for looking at them.

LOL re: age. As Mickey Mantle said: "If I knew I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself."

60's were a great time for baseball; that's for sure. Gibson is perhaps my favorite athlete of all time (maybe except for Dave Debusschere - cause if I had enough talent to play pro he's theguy I would have played like.

We were big Giant fans - going back to my granfather c1898 when he came to the US. When the Yankees beat the Giants 1-0 in Game 7 to win the WS in 1962 "Stretch" hit a ferocious line drive with runners on 2/3 and two out. Unfortunately it went straight into the glove of Bobby Richardson.

My grandfather was 81 and a bit senile. He went right after a hammer and attacked either his radio or TV screaming "I'll kill the SOB" My grandmother tackled him then called us over. He died 2 mos later - no doubt that took the little bit of life he had left out of him

I lived less than 1/2 mile from Gibson's house in Omaha. Every once in a while my buddies and me would ride our bikes past there and he'd be outside doing some yard work.

Funny thing about the end to the '60 and '62 World Series game sevens. One won by NY, one lost. Ralph Terry was on the mound, and pitcher of record in each. Mazeroski homers and McCovey lines out. Hit 'em where they ain't I guess.

Guaranteed not of u punks f*+*d w mr Gibson. Only guy I’d have feared more than my dad or the police. You’d have prayed to be arrested and beaten.

And re the tag at the end of your post. At the end of the movie Liberty Valence the reporter states “when the truth and the legend disagree always print the legend”

"Don’t dig in against Bob Gibson, he'll knock you down. He'd knock down his own grandmother if she dared to challenge him. Don't stare at him, don't smile at him, don't talk to him. He doesn't like it. If you happen to hit a home run, don't run too slow, don't run too fast. If you happen to want to celebrate, get in the tunnel first. And if he hits you, don't charge the mound, because he's a Gold Glove boxer. I'm like, damn, what about my seventeen-game hitting streak? That was the night it ended." - Hank Aaron
