Baseball Trivia


What three major leaguers homered before they turned 20 AND after they turned 40?

One is in the Hall of Fame, and another might join him.

One played for the Braves.

The third had one of baseball’s most colorful nicknames.


Hall of Famer: Ty Cobb

Most colorful nickname: Le Grande Orange: Rusty Staub.

Played for Braves / recently retired / will probably make the HOF, since he hit 500 home runs: Gary Sheffield.

This was mentioned in this week’s Sports Illustrated.

Perhaps Andruw will hang around long enough to become the fourth.
