"What word am I"
______________________________________________________________

There is a common English word that is
nine letters long. Each time you remove
a letter from it, it still remains an
English word - from nine letters right
down to a single letter.

What is the original word, and what are
the words that it becomes after removing
one letter at a time?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Put on your thinking caps ATS'rs. Let's see who the resident smartypants is around here. This is a tough one! First one to guess right will hold the title of "ATS Know-it-all AND will get to post the NEXT riddle. Good luck!!

well it has to start with an A or an I because those are the only two single letters that have any many in the engilish language.

for some reason, I thought you started with a nine-letter word and removed the LAST letter, to reveal an eight letter word and so on down to a one letter word.

:w:

Andy dislikes the catcher. Ed's sister is engaged to the second baseman. The center fielder is taller than the right fielder. Harry and the third baseman live in the same building. Paul and Allen each won $20 from the pitcher at pinochle. Ed and the outfielders play poker during their free time. The pitcher's wife is the third baseman's sister. The pitcher, catcher, and infielders except Allen, Harry, and Andy, are shorter than Sam. Paul, Andy, and the shortstop lost $50 each at the racetrack. Paul, Harry, Bill, and the catcher took a trouncing from the second baseman at pool. Sam is involved in a divorce suit. The catcher and the third baseman each have two children. Ed, Paul, Jerry, the right fielder, and the center fielder are bachelors. The others are married. The shortstop, the third baseman, and Bill each cleaned up $100 betting on the fight. One of the outfielders is either Mike or Andy. Jerry is taller than Bill. Mike is shorter than Bill. Each of them is heavier than the third baseman.

Using these facts, determine the names of the men playing the various positions on the baseball team.

Well...the only thing I can figure is that the answer would be nothing. What can be greater than God and more evil than the devil? Nothing could. Just a wild guess, but if that's not the answer then I have no clue!
